This is genetically diverse breeding stock. Every seed contains a new variety, never grown before (for better or worse). Variable traits should be expected. This population tends to produce vigorous plants with blue, red, or white tubers in variable shapes and sizes. While some plants may yield excellent tasting tubers, others may contain high levels of solanine and are not generally recommended for consumption.
These seeds have been dried to a low moisture content optimal for storage. Germination times may be slightly longer and more variable, taking up to a few weeks. After sowing, keep seeds moist until germination. The majority will germinate given the right conditions. Keep seeds moist until germination.
