Solanum tuberosum subsp. andigenum 4x

PI 233984 at Genesys

Accession Details

An andigena type tetraploid collected in Bolivia before 1956.

Observations

TPS.  Normal germinator, 7+ days.  High germination.  Elliptic to ovate.  Laterally compressed.  Whites, light yellows, and blues.  Most appear to be short day.  Long stolons.

Commentary

Initial seed increase 3.1g.  There is some reasonably good long day tuberization here, but in combination with long stolons, it isn’t that interesting.
