This is a medium to good producing tetraploid with bicoloured purple and white skin and purple flesh. The tuber is flattened a bit like a pancake and with fairly shallow eyes. This variety has medium dormancy and will keep over the winter in a dark, dry place.
This variety is pretty easy to look after and can be harvested 4 months after planting. It will produce 2 harvests per year starting with the first planting in September and replanting directly after harvest. I believe that this would make a great variety for the market garden as well as home grower as it is easy to harvest, has a good flavour and is easy to peel.
Note that this is a tall, strong plant with large leaves and is very thirsty. It needs regular watering and doesn’t recover well if allowed to dry out and wilt.
Commercial potential: High but as a novelty due to the flesh colour. Cultivation is easy.

Storage until planting: Chit before planting if you want them all to sprout at the same time. You can plant now before the tubers are sprouting but they will come up sporadically.
NOTE: potatoes grown through the heat of summer will produce less and smaller tubers than when grown in cooler weather (spring). This is normal.
