Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Potato Red Skins - sliced fruit. 2014-08-24.


Compact and wispy looking plants with delicate regular leaf foliage. Red blunt hearts with smooth shoulders and very meaty texture with small seed chambers, 4-11 oz. Some fruits may have somewhat 'russet' skin, hence probably the name. Some fruits are round. Not very many seeds per fruit. Excellent rich and sweet flavor. (15 seeds / packet)
