Solanum hjertingii is a tetraploid wild potato from northern Mexico. It has resistance to bruising. It can be crossed directly with diploid domesticated potatoes, producing small amounts of hybrid triploid seed. I have found the tubers of many plants to be non-bitter and presumably safe to eat, but not all. For more information, click on the information and growing instructions link above.
