New Zealand Yam

Oxalis tuberosa, Oka, Oca

 Customer Rating
  • Introduced exclusively by T&M
Also known as the New Zealand Yam, this unusual member of the Oxalis family has long been grown in the Andes for its nutritionally rich tubers with a tangy lemon flavour that becomes nuttier once cooked. The red skinned tubers have a crisp pale orange or creamy coloured flesh that can be eaten raw in salads or boiled, baked, and fried - just like potatoes. You can even add the attractive shamrock-like leaves and shoots to salads for a refreshing citrus twist. Oca makes a particularly attractive crop in the vegetable garden or even in a container on the patio. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Yacon

Smallanthus sonchifolius, Peruvian Ground Apple, Bolivian Sunroot

An unusual and delicious tuber, widely grown in South America for its crunchy texture and sweet pear-like flavour. Similar in appearance to a sweet potato but with the texture of water chestnuts, yacon makes a fabulous addition to stir fries and salads, or try tossing it in olive oil and roasting with other root vegetables. The juice from yacon tubers can also be simmered to make a sweet syrup similar to honey or maple syrup. Containing an indigestible sugar called Inulin, both the tubers and syrup are suitable for diabetics and yacon syrup is virtually calorie-free! Yacon makes a particularly attractive crop in the garden with bushy growth and large lush leaves which lend an exotic feel to borders or the vegetable plot. Height: 1.8m (6'). Spread: 100cm (39").
