This tetraploid variety produces medium, lumpy tubers with a dark purple skin and flesh.
Poor production, at least in my soil.
Floury and dry. Great for baking and mashing – watch when boiling as they will disintegrate if over boiled, probably best microwaved to cook for mashing.
Storage until planting: keep in a dark place until ready to plant, but if they start sprouting earlier, place tubers in a bright place. The light will stop the sprouts from growing too much. Plant 3-5 weeks before you expect your first frosts to finish. I plant mine in September here in southern Victoria. See ‘storage’ page for tips on overwintering tubers.
NOTE: potatoes grown over summer produce less and smaller tubers than those grown over cooler weather in spring. This is normal.
