Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Orlov Yellow - ripe fruit. 2009-09-04.

B.C KO T

Mid to late season, indet., vigorous potato leaf plants that stay healthy throughout the entire season, 10-16 oz orange perfectly shaped beefsteaks with smooth shoulders, no core, buttery firm orange flesh with small seed cavities and thick gel, outstanding flavor that reminded me of Yellow Brandywine. Earlier than Yellow Brandywine, and much more productive.
