Gardeners' Notes:

Positive curzio On Dec 7, 2008, curzio from Kenosha, WI wrote:

Can I give this cultivar a DOUBLE positive? This Alaskan cultivar is very early, has a colored flesh (which suggests higher levels of antioxidants). It is also known as Cranberry Red. Early (for tubers to steal without disrupting the vines) and mid-season for a larger crop to harvest once the vines have naturally died. And it sets seed pods for you to experiment growing potato starting with true potato seed (TPS). More information can be found by googling Kenosha Potato Project.

Considered to be the best producing red-fleshed, red-skinned variety, and performs consistently for them regardless of weather. 90-110 days.

Very healthy, prolific. The potatos were medium in size, and tasty, but not good for mashing or baking, better for salad. The plants need to be mulched, but did not get any scab, and responded well to manure.

These seed potatoes were purchased in the Mat-Valley of Alaska where they were grown and certified by Pyrah's Pioneer Peak Farm.
