10/08 My first time growing this potato. I grew only one plant in a fabric tub. I forgot to plant it until very late (mid-July). It still grew into a huge, beautiful plant and yielded 4 lbs of large tubers. Harvested at 100 days after a light frost. See my pics. I expect it would be a good keeper but they won't be around long enough to find out.

As strong, healthy and red as the Warrior Chief was. Very promising red potato. Medium-to-large sized tubers with shallow eyes. Holds its color well in storage and has good keeping qualities.
