Tubers of the USDA potato accession PI 243376PI 243376 “Arracachuela Careta”

Solanum tuberosum subsp. andigenum 4x

PI 243376 at Genesys

Accession Details

An andigena type tetraploid collected in Colombia before 1957.

Observations

TPS.  Round to irregular.  Blues with white flesh.  Shallow eyes.  Few tubers and very long stolons.  Probably strongly short day.  Moderate seed yield.

Commentary

Initial seed increase 3.1g.  This feels more like a wild potato than domesticated.  Maybe a cross with a wild species?
