Product Description

This item is a pre-order for our 2017 crop, to be delivered between fall 2017 and spring 2018.

This is a very nice variety with large tubers, good yields, and fairly early tuber formation.  It appears that it might be a mutation of Sunset, as it is very similar to that variety in every trait but skin color.  While Sunset produces orange-skinned tubers, Cherry Red has red tubers, as you might expect.  Occasionally, we find a tuber that has partially or completely mutated to orange skin, which prompted this speculation.  Whatever its origin, this is a superior variety that produces reliably for us.  The tubers look a lot nicer than our picture suggests – I really need to take a new one.
