Sunset Oca Tubers – Oxalis tuberosum
Sunset is an early sprouter and strong grower in the spring. If you can’t get Hopin or Bolivian Red Sunset is probably the next best choice for growing in the Pacific Northwest. Together, they make a good pair for breeding, since they are vigorous, early, long-flowering, and have compatible flower forms.
Sunset is probably the heaviest yielding variety among those available in the US, although Hopin,White, and Bolivian Red come close. Sunset is about two weeks earlier to being forming tubers than most varieties. It probably begins tuberization at a daylength of about 12.5 hours.
