A vendor offers this description: "Fresh market variety produces a high set of medium-sized tubers. Attractive bright red smooth thin skin retains its color well. Moist flesh is great braised with olive oil, chicken broth and a little salt. Serve with tossed salad and fresh shell beans—and experience the joys of late-summer eating. Medium-large upright plant with lavender flowers."
