#1 red every year! This large round potato has thin, dark-red skins, deep eyes, and crisp white flesh. Excellent for mashed potatoes and boiling, but not baking. Heat-tolerant, long-storing, and high-yielding, it will grow in heavy soil; well suited for growing in wire cages. One precaution about this variety: the skin is so thin it should allowed to cure and firm up for a week or two in the ground after the vines die back.
