OCTOBER BLUE TPS

October_Blue_TPS

This strain came from Minnesota (Lee Lee B. Jolliffe) – grown from botanical seed a few years ago – it is believed that the original cross NORDIC OCTOBER x AZUL TORO, made by Tom Wagner is now lost. It features a medium thick skin and the flesh is flaky as found in most blue fleshed.
The name OCTOBER mislead me to think of a late season variety. Tom Wagner first grew it in California in the fall. The vines here in Kenosha were done in July. The male parent AZUL TORO is one of the few blue fleshed tubers that features a more “waxy” flesh, cooks firmer.
