This item is a pre-order for our 2017 crop, to be delivered between fall 2017 and spring 2018.
Satsop is a 2016 introduction from Cultivariable. This variety comes from a complex lineage that includes Ken Aslet, Blanca, Bogota Market, and wild mashua.
Satsop brings earlier flowering, large tuber size, good yield, and somewhat milder flavor together. The tubers are large and thick, cream colored with red eyes and red blushing toward the tip. Its only negative is a tendency to crack a little in wet soils. Satsop is a good compromise for an edible ornamental, flowering a bit later than Ken Aslet, but improving on Ken’s strong flavor and poor yield.
