Solanum multiinterruptum

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

Johns (1990) found levels of 50 and 68mg/100g for two accessions tested.  The primary glycoalkaloids were solanine and chaconine.  They also found a level of 42mg/100g but that accession was later reclassified.

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
