FLAVOUR IS A FRONTIER
Natoora Oca di Peru Root
- A firm, juicy pink root native to Peru with a slightly peppery, nutty flavour.
- We source these roots from a specialist root grower in Brittany, northern France.
- Grown in open fields without the use of chemical sprays or fertilisers.
- Sourced during its natural growing season of November to January.
- When cooked, these potato-like tubers become starchy and lose some of their bright colour.
Take it further
- No need to peel - slice thinly raw and use like a radish.
- Roast whole, tossed with olive oil and parsley.

tried them raw and didn't like them at all. tasted like sour crunchy lemon. went to try cooking them a day or so later and they'd gone mouldy.
Expensive but good
I got some half price, don't think I'd pay full price, but we had them roasted and they were tasty and very unusual. In a good way!
a good new vegetable to try
We tried this raw and cooked. It tastes different in both forms. Raw tastes like its cross between a radish and cucumber. Cooked in the oven for 8-10 min tastes like a vinegary potato. Some of my family liked it raw, some liked it cooked. I didnt really like it either way. Im glad we tried it in the flash sale. I will buy it again if anyone in my family ask for it.
Mouldy and acidic
I was excited about trying these, didnt start well when they were delivered with the majority mouldy (thank you Ocado for the refund). I picked through and found 6 that were ok. Gave them a scrub (been with the mouldy ones) and roast them in a little olive oil. They werent nice, similar to what Id imagine a waxy new potatoes, roasted, covered in vinegar might taste like. Wont be buying them again
Like a lemony, crispier new potato. I cooked them for 5 mins after a quick rinse under the tap. Easy and delicious.
Unusual but very tasty
I gave them a quick rinse in cold water then roasted them with a little bit of sunflower oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. They were delicious - a bit like a slightly vinegar-y roasted new potato.
