Item details

Brightly colored Ulluco tubers from the Andes. All parts of the plant are edible. But the delicous tubers are prized throughout South America! It is pronounced oo YOO ko. It is also known as olluco, papa lisa, melloco, ruba or chugua in the northern Andes

It is a sprawling plant and makes an excellent weed choking ground cover. Everywhere the stem touches the ground a beautiful new tuber will grow. It grows up to 3 feet in diameter and 15 inches high in a single season. Stems are colored green to red and the leaves and stems are succulent.

A single ulluco plant can form hundreds of tubers. The tubers are super colorful and include purple green orange yellow white and red.

Ulluco has only 80% of the calories of a potato and is a good source of carbs. It contains up to twice as much vitamin C compared to potato. Similar to beets the bright colors of the tubers indicate the presence of betalains. Betalains are active antioxidants. The tubers have a beet like earthy flavor with a different texture. The mashed tubers can be combined with mashed potatoes for a new take on an old dish...

The succulent leaves of the plant make a wonderful spinach substitute.

The tubers will turn green when exposed to sun but unlike potatoes the green color is harmless.

The tubers are typically simply washed and then cooked with the skin on. They can be fried baked or boiled. They can be combined with beets and/or potatoes.
