Round tubers with creamy yellow flesh. Developed by the Loo brothers, organic farmers on Prince Edward Island, Island Sunshine is the result of natural selection. Different from most breeding programs where the selections are 'pampered' (given insect and disease control), the Loo brothers selected only crosses that survived insect and disease pressure without controls. Read more, including recipes by googling the Kenosha Potato Project - and google to find an authorized supplier for this patented cultivar which can only be sold by authorized vendors until 2015.
