LUMP D’ORO

Lump_DoroA variety selected by Wendy Montanez from Tom Wagner’s TPS, a cross of NORDIC LUMPER x OP.  Wendy tells me: All my TPS are Open pollinated! I can only say that this offspring is from Lumper Nordic. I suspect the male donor to be Skagit Valley Gold. After consulting with Tom he told me that Lumper Nordic, he though that had Lumper and Nordic October as parents, and since I was reporting yellow flesh I concluded that my assumption had some validity. The tuber features are flattened round with smooth pink skin and yellow flesh, as shown in that picture it has a depressed area on the eyes, it’s susceptible to scab, flowers pink/mauve, tall plant, sends lots of secondary stems, potatoes does not mature all at once, fast cook times.

The tubers store very well.
