Truly a beautiful potato, with deep purple skin dappled with pink splashes and stripes. Bright white and creamy-good, the flesh bakes or mashes perfectly. This variety produces what we call "lunkers," large oversized potatoes, so plant close (8"-10") to control size. An acceptable substitute for Caribe as it bulks quickly, has beautiful coloring and delicious eating qualities. Scab resistant. Mid, 90 days.
With tan skin with dark yellow flesh. Matures around 85 days with respectable yields. Absolutely delectable steamed and tossed with butter and parsley or in your favorite salad. Resistant to scab.White flowers on medium spreading plant. Late, 110+ days.
Though plumper than most, this potato (also known as "Nosebag") is still considered a fingerling. Radiant rose-red skin and deep yellow flesh with an occasional red ring make this potato stand out. Creamy, smooth texture with exceptional flavor lends itself well to salad with thinly-sliced red onions and chunks of crisp cucumbers. Abundant, long, plump tubers seem to tumble out of the earth. Tall plants with red veining fill the row. Good for ’tower’ plantings. Late, 110 days
