This diploid variety produces small to medium size, round, violet tubers with white eyes and white flesh. It flowers profusely for a long period and could be used for ornamental purposes as well as for eating.
- Dormancy: 4-5 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.
Please note that potatoes grown over the heat of summer produce less, and smaller, tubers than those grown in spring.
