Solanum juzepczukii

This page is a draft, part of our ongoing wild potato project. I’ll probably be adding information to the species pages through 2020 at least, but I’m making them public since they may be useful even incomplete.

Glykoalkaloid content

Osman (1978) found that total glycoalkaloids ranged from 11.7 to 46.8mg/kg, so this species straddles the generally accepted safety limit of 20mg/kg.  Some varieties are edible fresh, while others must be processed to reduce glycoalkaloid content.

Cultivariable will not open for sales in 2017. We will be back in 2018. For more information, read the notice at the top of our home page. Dismiss
