Plantation of Peruvian oca at La Traversine garden

With the arrival of Spring, it is possible to sow and plant more and more crops at the Traversine.

This year, for example, we wanted to introduce the children to a new vegetable, the Peruvian oca! It is a pinkish-red tuber, sometimes entirely yellow, about the size of a small potato. As its name suggests, the Peruvian oca is native to South America and can be cooked in the same way as potatoes (sautéed, boiled or fried).

The taste is also similar to the potatoes, but with a touch of acidity that is not unpleasant!
