The many varieties of potatoes found in Peru
@benjancewicz The only staple crop that has all the essential amino acids - making it a "complete protein"
@benjancewicz I wish I had a lot of different potatoes to eat right now.
@benjancewicz tag yourself
@benjancewicz I could be wrong but I think there's an oca in there, which isn't a potato
@cathal @benjancewicz oh really? I had no idea oca was that varied, but will you look at those motherfuckers: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Oxalis_tuberosa_diversity.jpg
Oca not only isn't a potato, it isn't even in the potato's solanaceae family or solanales order. It's a rosid, more closely related to apples, creosote bushes, roses, beans, squash, Rafflesia, nasturtiums, goatheads, mustard, birch trees, grapevines, and broccoli than it is to potatoes.
@kragen @benjancewicz Heck it, I'm growing Oca and I did not know they were Rosids! :)
We grew Potatoes and we're growing Oca.. Potatoes got hit by late blight, we've rescued some of the crop but lost lots too. Oca are apparently fine, looking forward to seeing our yield... in December! Slow growers..
@benjancewicz I like the lumpy bois that looks like challah bread
@benjancewicz do you know the names of any of them?
@@benjancewicz Eye boys
@benjancewicz You could easily hide a pineapple in there.
@benjancewicz 😍 😍 😍
@benjancewicz Some of them look an extreme pain to peel
