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.
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 little pink blush. Very pretty!
There were no figure 8 shapes this year. This Blue Shetland TPS plant produced a fairly average dark colored tuber.
These diploid tubers are really pretty but the yield is too low for practical use.
I had only one plant of Magic Molly TPS so there was nothing to compare these with.
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.
The 2016 TPS harvest has begun with two seedlings from Pig Knuckles TPS.
