SORRY WE CANNOT SHIP POTATO TUBERS TO: AK, ID, HI, & CANADA
Cornell University developed a potato with a particular leaf characteristic. A result of a cross using the wild, Solanum berthaultii, from Bolivia. Tiny hairs filled with a sticky fluid make the leaves unfavorable to eat by leafhoppers flea beetles and Colorado potato beetles. Round, yellow skin with white flesh and a smooth, waxy texture. Stores well. Mid-season.
Plant whole or cut into pieces (2-3) eyes each. Allow pieces to air dry for 24 hours. Place 6" apart in rows 3' apart. Cover tuber with soil. Continue to cover as the vines grow by hilling soil, leaves, straw, or compost over the tuber. Leave only small portions of the plant exposed to promote more potatoes.
