Product Description

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

This is an open source variety.  Click for more information.

Only available through the Early Access Program this year.

Taholah is from a 2015 cross between the heirloom varieties Cusco Market and Llanqha Puca.  Four pounds from a single plant in 2016 convinced us to offer it immediately to trial growers. Unless there are surprises in store, it will be available in the main catalog in 2017.  I noticed that it was forming tubers back in mid-August, which is about a month earlier than any other variety we have and could be a big step forward for a crop that normally only forms tubers once short days arrive.  It picked up the purple skin and longer stems of Llanqha Puca but kept the size, shape, flavor, and orange flesh of Cusco Market, which is exactly what I hoped for. That almost never happens!
