This is one of the very few potatoes that can be grown from true seed and is available commercially. Zolushka is considered a good frying potato (great for chips), and is one of the most prolific producers, out-yielding hundreds of other varieties. We selected the largest tubers which can be up to 4 inches in diameter, all grown from true seed. True seed is the teeny seed extracted from the fruit of the potato which is often ignored and thrown out. Zolushka has a smooth skin with uniform 2-3 inch long potatoes. Makes bunches of early potatoes too 80-95 days from tubers. These selections also produce true seed too with fruits ripening in September. One fruit can contain easily 100 or more seeds. These you can dry and then plant like tomato seeds the following season. Growing from true seed eliminates the virus contamination problem if that occurs. Can fall ship if you request it or normally we spring ship these. Available starting in October of 2019. No shipment to ID,MT,AK.
