Observations

Clone.  Tubers oblong with moderately deep eyes.  Blue skin and white flesh with a little blue.  Large plants for the species.  Abundant flowering and set a few berries with open pollination.  Good frost resistance.  Tuberization looks short day, but I’m not sure of that.  Fairly bitter.  Heavy flowering.  Berries extremely rare and generally containing 0 to 3 seeds.

Commentary

Best yield of the S. juzepczukii varieties available from the potato genebank.
