Product Description

The tubers tend to be fat and oval. They are a pale white with dark red eyes. The skin develops some pink color after exposure to light. Really good flavor. An early variety to break dormancy, but only a moderately fast grower. Low yield for us, although other growers have reported better results. Red stems and green foliage.  Poor flowerer.  A Sacred Succulents introduction.

We think this variety is more interesting for breeding than as a main crop variety as the yields are on the low end and the flesh sometimes forms voids.
