Elongated Red Diploid TPS Harvest

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

The TPS harvest continues…

The two ERD plants that have been growing side by side all season have finally been harvested.  The ERD #1 plant had pink flowers which produced the berries shown in the lower right hand corner of the photo.  The ERD #2 plant had white flowers and produced a couple berries which were smaller than those pictured above.  The differences between these tubers is a great example of the diversity that comes from growing potatoes from true seed.
