I am thinking to grow small amount of oca this year. Is there anyone can tell me where I can get some seeds or tuber to try? Thank you so much!

Jane: You can buy oca in the USA at www.cultivariable.com. Delia: Okra, the edible pod, is Abelmoschus esculentus. Oca, a tuber, is Oxalis tuberosa. In Australia, you might be more familiar with it under the name "New Zealand Yam".
