I grew up in an agriculture area and am always interested in local crops when traveling. Never would I have imagined wheat and hops growing higher than 10,000 feet. Turns out that the light coupled with being in the tropics where it doesn't snow or freeze at that elevation create a great environment for farming. The area is famous for potatoes and supposedly over 300 varieties are grown here. It's also famous for hops that supply Peru's largest brewery and also wheat and quinoa, a big cash crop as its popularity in the US has grown.
