Ulluco tuber, Ullucus tuberosus

Ulluco is a crop from the Andes. Elsa, who is a fellow danish seed saver, posted the tuber in a frostfree period this winter. Since then I have stored it in the larder. I took a look at it, since I have read in a blog that it sprouts very quickly when it decides to grow. I want to be prepared when it happens.
Color is fantastic, and it comes in many solid colors as well as multicolored.

To get some idea on how to grow it I’ll read “Lost Crops of the Incas”
