I have grown Oca for years.  Originally I grew for food;  it's ok but 
not particularly tasty.  Here in the SF bay area the large produce 
markets sell in bulk.  One called it pink potato.  They are very easy to 
grow outside here and they pretty much stay where planted.  Squirrels 
occasionally move them.
