TPS for this plant came from Joseph Lofthouse. This plant was very vigorous and had the most vine growth of all my TPS plants this year. I was very impressed with it.
‘Bountiful’ Potato 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 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.
