Potatoes, yacon, oca, and other root crops
« on: April 27, 2021, 08:34:51 PM »
Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share my favorite source for root crops from a breeder in Washington.  He just made items available for pre-order for next season.

Cultivariable.com

He specializes in Andean potatoes, yacon, oca, mashua, and ulluco.
Iíve also ordered perennial sea kale and dwarf Jerusalem artichokes.
I love his potatoes.

Found him this year, ordered oca and mashua. Incredible prices for these, and they came bigger/better than excpected and packed well. Also, his breeding work is incredible, and he might be the only easily accessible breeder of these Andean crops (including potatoes!) in the U.S.

Highly recommended!
