Having years ago amused myself by letting seeds from potato "fruit" germinate, I know first-hand that this tends to yield very poor relations. However, to fill out my Yacon order with Nichols gardens last year I bought some potato "true seeds" (eg: not tubers; actual seeds) of a variety called Zolushka. These ended up being fabulous:productive, beautiful, fairly tasty, and easy. And made me want to include more potatoes from true seeds next year. Does anyone have experience with true seeds and know of a source for additional varieties?
