- Indet., potato leaf plants, large beefsteak fruits, purple on the outside and green with purple marbling inside. Excellent strong fruity flavor. 8-14 oz.
- 2 out of 4 seedlings grown were potato leaf, and 2 were regular leaf.
- I got all potato leaf seedlings from my seeds saved in 2011.
- 1. Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio (OH AN A) 06 / Todd Coleman, Ohio
Year grown: 2011, 2012
- 80 days, indet., potato leaf plant with a good yield of 4-8 oz purple-black fruit with very good flavor, may be unstable.
- OH AN A 06 (Al Anderson of Troy Ohio) / Todd Coleman, Ohio
Location: Oblong, Illinois
- Original seeds from Todd Coleman of Sandusky, Ohio, who stabilized it over 4 years and shared it with Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio (OH AN A). Al described it as a regular leaf variety.
- First introduced in Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Neil Lockhart of Oblong, Illinois (IL LO N) , who received the seed from Al Anderson of Troy, Ohio. Neil listed it as potato leaf, and it is not clear if this variety is still unstable, or a seed mix-up happened in the seed exchanges, or Al Anderson made a mistake when describing it as regular leaf.
- Tatiana's note: I grew this variety from 2005 seed obtained from Al Anderson, and got 50% split between regular leaf and potato leaf seedlings. Therefore I am making an assumption that this variety should be potato leaf, and it was likely not entirely stable when Al Anderson shared the seeds around.
