This diploid variety produces small, odd shaped tubers with pinkish skin and yellow flesh.
Best for boiling and mash. Has a waxy/sticky texture and good flavour. Makes lovely yellow mashed potatoes.
- Dormancy: 4 weeks
- 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.
