Bunyip is a variety from the Garden Larder breeding/selection program. The tubers are cream lightly blushed with pink and with pink eyes. Many large tubers. Oca is a close relative of the weed oxalis that you may find in your garden, though oca does not go weedy, and produces tasty tubers in late Autumn/early Winter. They have a starchy, potato like flavour and texture.
