Oca (Oxalis tuberosa) plants grow potatoes in late fall when temperature is cold. In blue circles are some small bulbs. 奇優果秋末變冷時開始結球根. 藍色圈圈是小球.

It is one of the root vegetables.  Usually grow from seed potatoes like these in the image.  Very low maintenance.  The produce potatoes like tubers, starchy after cooked.  Best to grow these in full sun to partial shade location.  USDA Zones:9-11.   Mature size: 1.5′-2′(H) X 6″-1′(W).  Suppose the small yellow flowers in late fall but not often set seeds — I guess because by then the weather gets too cold and too wet for pollination.

It will be a very interesting experiment this year for sure!  🙂

中文叫做奇優果,它就是專門種來吃地下的根莖的酢醬草種類.  還不少品種,有的白,有的紅,有的粉紅,黃或紫黑… 它是低維護的根莖類蔬菜之一.  煮法跟馬鈴薯一樣.  含澱粉高,口味微酸.  種植以全日照或半日照環境最佳.  不耐寒.  成熟株高1.5-2呎高,6吋到1呎寬幅.   小黃花通常在秋末左右開,能結子但不容易結子–大概是天氣轉冷並潮濕影響結子的闗係.

收到種子球有點脫水,已經放到澆溼盆土的小盆中先養著好恢復.  這是今年的實驗之一,應該會很有意思.
