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. Our original supplier mentioned that this variety has appeared in several Star Trek episodes as an alien vegetable.
