Comments: A reliable variety that will tolerate some sun. This variety has been on the market for a number of years and has withstood the test of time for good performance. Mammoth and jumbo sized tubers may be cut into several planting pieces for greater color massing. These pieces usually produce more leaves of slightly smaller sizes. Allow cut pieces to air dry 10-12 hours before planting.
