This appears to be a very small variety height-wise. Compared to the other potatoes I am growing, it is about 1/2 the size. Blooming late July here (a bit later than other varieties I grow, but not by much) and only about 12 inches tall.

Received tubers through SSE from Colorado ($5 for each 1" size tubers - the most expensive tubers in the world). This variety is very light (day lenght) sensitive - Ducktrapper, a Kenosha Potato Project member who lives a few hours further North had more success growing it as he has longer summer days than here in SE Wisconsin - I'm giving one more chance next year ... growing in a raised bed for higher soil temps.
