Should I grow it or eat it?

For further reading about oca and a few other tubers, Lost Crops of the 
Incas is on-line:…

Some of us in CRFG (California Rare Fruit Growers)  have been growing it 
for several years.
No one I know particularly likes to eat it, though.  It shows up in bins 
in the potato section of our best produce store in Oakland
(Berkeley Bowl) as red potatos at around $4# in the fall.  There isn't 
the lovely variety that Frieda's has, though.

Now mashua(tropaeolum tuberosum) is a different story, delicious.
