    Default Oca (Oxalis tuberosa)

    Hi all,

    I have available some Oca which I grew in a few tubs last year. Its been sat in the fridge since harvesting, but as my wife and daughter are not too keen on the taste I've decided I'm not going to grow it this year (more room for spuds), so will share it around if anyone is interested. I'd guess I've got around 50 tubers all together.

    Anything that the receiver can do to make things easier for me will be most welcome (i.e. collect, pay postage). I've got a few envelopes so that should be fine.

    Its a dark red variety, which I bought from Realseeds last year.

    Hi Paul, I'd like a few please!! If you can give me an idea of postage costs, I'll send you some stamps when I send your VSP seeds back (Yours haven't arrived yet - no deliveries here since Thursday because of snow).

    I'd be up for some too. Let me know what you need in terms of postage. I could include some quinoa if you wanted?

    Okay then.....at the moment I'll split it 4 ways (vc, kc, ff, woody). If anyone else is interested before I send them out (likely to be Thursday at the earliest) then I can spread them a bit more, but perhaps only 2 or 3 more packs. I note Real seeds send in pack of 5 tubers.

    I just looked back at my previous orders and the variety is 'Helens Red Oca'.

    I'll weigh out some tubers tonight to work out what the postage costs are likely to be, but would have thought 2 sounds about right. Will confirm later.

    Would be interested in the Quinoa and chillis. What spacing do you need for the Quinoa, and I have about 10 types of chilli's already but if you could PM me a list that'd be great.

    Its the rainbow quinoa also from real seeds, I can't remember the spacing, as I don't really go by those things. But it does get to around 5 ft, so does need space and you can grow other things around it. I can either send some stamps with the seeds or transfer the money via paypal?

    Thanks so much for the Oca, looks like an interesting variety!
