Product Description

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

A reasonably high yielding variety, although not the match of Sunset, Hopin, and Bolivian Red.  After exposure, flavor is mildly sweet and sour, like a pie apple.  Attractive dark red tubers.  Red stems and green foliage.  This one may be a bit more tolerant of summer heat.  Dormancy seems to be shorter than many varieties, which sometimes causes storage problems.
