FL Fingerling TPS Harvest

In 2015, I bought some red-fleshed fingerling potatoes while on vacation in Florida.  I brought two tubers home and planted them in 2015.  This plant is from TPS that was produced by those tubers.

Adirondack Red TPS Harvest

The months of unexpectedly hot, dry weather in 2016 were not good for potato growing.  Overall, between TPS plants and regular tuber-planted potatoes, my yields were low and the plants did not produce berries.  However, this plant defied all expectations.  It produced a record setting yield of beautiful, multi-colored tubers.

These red-skinned tubers have mostly yellow flesh with a pink blush.  Very pretty!

Blue Shetland TPS Harvest

There were no figure 8 shapes this time.  Blue Shetland produced a fairly average dark colored tuber.

Elongated Red Diploid TPS Harvest

These diploid tubers are really pretty but the yield is too low for practical use.

Magic Molly TPS Harvest

I had only one plant of Magic Molly TPS so there was nothing to compare these with.

Red Ox TPS Harvest

Unfortunately, these Red Ox TPS tubers did not have the red flesh that I was hoping for.

The numbering system for these tubers is incorrect. I only harvested two Red Ox plants.

Pig Knuckles TPS Harvest

The 2016 TPS harvest has begun with two seedlings from Pig Knuckles TPS.

These tubers were growing very close to a Red Ox TPS plant which ended up looking similar. It was difficult to tell them apart.
