  Arracacha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The arracacha is a garden root vegetable originally from the Andes, somewhat intermediate between the carrot and celery.
The name arracacha (or racacha) was borrowed into Spanish from Quechua, and is used in the Andean region.
The yellow cultivar contains substantial amounts of carotenoid pigments, precursors to vitamin A, to the point that excessive consumption of arracachas may cause yellowing of the skin (a condition that is not considered to be harmful).

 Mountain Partnership
As part of a broader programme aimed at enhancing the quality of life of Andean rural families, a project to promote the cultivation and consumption of arracacha was implemented from 1999 to 2002 among local mountain communities in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador.
Important innovations were introduced in terms of the planting and propagation of arracacha.
As a result, the producers of arracacha have been able to increase the sale price and also the amount of fresh produce that they market.

The producing families sell the root to the processors who in turn are growers of sugarcane, these interact with providers of services and with the merchants who are members of the same community.
In the preparation all the family participates, however, there are very defined roles: The men are those which grind the cane, grate the arracacha and beat the mixture, the women prepare the mixture, boil it, packs it, stir the fire, and care of the stored product.
This effort initiated in 1999, stimulating the local development, has improved the income of over 1200 families and has potential to continue to be developed possibly on the basis of alliances with the private sector.

In oca: Arracacha virus B (AVB), Papaya mosaic virus (PapMV), and Ullucus mild mottle virus (UMMV); in ulluco: Ullucus virus C (UVC), Ullucus mosaic virus (UMV), PapMV, and UMMV; and in arracacha: Arracacha A virus (AVA).
Except with one accession of oca that was infected with TMV/U, this was successfully achieved using a protocol of in vitro virus elimination that combined heat and chemical therapy.
