Ahahawat is a Cultivariable original variety, introduced in 2018. We selected this from open pollinated seedlings of our Original variety ‘Copalis’. In 2019, Ahahawat was free of all viruses that we test for in mashua.
Ahahawat tubers are large. At full maturity, they are light yellow with purple eyes. Harvested before full maturity, they are white, with just a little bit of yellow at the tip. The flavor is excellent, slightly sweet with no bitterness or flowery aftertaste. I think it is one of the best mashuas that I have tasted.
Plants are large and vigorous with very high yields. On trellis and with plentiful water, this variety can produce 15 pounds of tubers or more per plant.
