Thanks, everyone now or in the future for ordering off the New World Seeds & Tubers website
Just for the record, these additions will be added to the website under TPS, but not tubers
Missaukee October Will produce mostly reds and pinks with white flesh, occasionally a few white skin. Round tubers. Primary interest should be for segregating for Late Blight resistance, Pink Rot resistance. Verticillium Wilt and Golden Cyst Nematode A few other considerations…most reds do not fry well without turning dark. Many seedlings here will be more versatile for a variety of cooking needs, lower sugars and higher specific gravities.
Augustus Most will segregate for oval to long yellow skinned tubers with some degree of yellow flesh. They should be an occasional red skin seedling. Looking for high yielding seedling clones with floury texture.
Quarter Master Looking for shiny round blue tubers with about a quarter of the flesh blue.
Phyto Phyter High yielding white round to oblong tubers with white flesh. Should be a good source of late blight resistance. Phyto is short for late blight and Phyter if a rhyming pun for fighter.
Johann Peuker Should segregate for white to brown tubers of a round to slightly flattened appearance. Many will have great scab resistance. Should be good for frying. Low internal problems
Skagit Beets Many will be red skin with pink to red flesh. Round to sl. Oblong
Toro Pan This one should segregate mostly for large red skin tubers with some white flesh and a few light yellow fleshed. The flavors will tend towards pleasant flavors.
Hearts of Sweden Searching for a Desiree type of potato…light red skin with some yellow flesh. The main interest I have is to get the recombination of the Rosamunda Swedish variety within the seedlings. Trying to get that "Oh, Yeah" flavor.
Tollocan Fiesta This family of seedlings should be either white, yellow, pink, or red. The yields and blight resistances are among the reasons to grow this one. Very large plants.
Ashmont Look for russets within this family. High solids for baking Good keepers
Caroline Geppert Many round whites with scab resistance. Good table potato with lots of Wauseon type traits.
Finishing Up Several years of recombinant work with Yellow Finn and my Black Hills Gold puts together some excellent flavored yellow potatoes with round to long shapes predominating. Since it is an inbreeding family, care must be given to find the rare high yielders.
Boy Pig Mostly yellow tubers with slight to heavy red splashes on the skin. Yellow flesh. Good flavor.
Transitions Look for round yellow tubers with red eyes to pretty red tubers. It should offer very yellow to white flesh. The main objective is to find maturity transitions from late to very very early clones.
Designer Roses Look for super red tubers with white flesh. High yielding tuber lines should be a major concern. You should be able to find that 'New Potato Flavor" from fresh harvested potatoes through the long storage.
Near Yukon This one has Yukon Gold in its pedigree and I am looking for some clones with near alike YG as possible but with even better flavor.
Huagalina This old variety from the Andes has good flavor and gorgeous red and yellow splashed round tubers with deep eyes. It will throw many yellow fleshed seedlings with super high tuber counts per hill. Most of the seedlings will have tubers no bigger than golf balls. It is one hardy "Son of a Gun" potato
Gold Caesar This combines the best of European potato flavor with a heavy dose of Canadian and American bloodlines. The addition of Andean Neo-tuberosum just adds to the mix. Mostly round yellows with yellow flesh.
Kiva Mostly round whites with white to pale yellow flesh. This forty year old Danish variety is good for salads and has the chance to yield well. The pedigree goes back to Karma and Up To Date. Good berry producer.
La Pan If you are looking for yellow fleshed fingerling potatoes, this is the one. It combines LaRatte and Gold Pan for a full flavor combination of some of the best tasting potatoes from around the world.
Russeto Every now and then I find a potato clone that doesn’t fit the pedigree and becomes an orphan. The white fleshed russet will segregate for the same.
October Blood This one will segregate for reds and blues…many with white, red and or blue flesh. Most will be rounds.
Land Races This combines the true seed of many individual plants out of a cross of two land races from Bolivia and Peru. All colors will be popping up.
Cascading Tom Many oval yellow tubers with yellow flesh. If you are looking for one of the best flavored potatoes for microwaving…this is the top one. Pretty smooth and shiny tubers.
Lady Krokar This is a seedling from Roda Krokar, a Swedish variety that had floury pink fingerling potatoes. Most fingerlings are salad types of potatoes, therefore this one is good for dishes requiring the full texture of a "Queenie"!!!
Squat Orange I took a Squat Blue that was the result of a diploid cross from Joe Pavek (ADX9502) to my Tres Papas and then crossed it to a Papa Amarilla type to get an outstanding orange fleshed diploid. This one is more complicated than my Skagit Valley Gold…but if you can help me find the deepest orange fleshed potatoes…so be it.
Prince Harry Hoping to improve the flavor of the Prince Harry (different than King Harry) but retain the trichome hairs to implement insect protection. Pest species adversely affected by glandular trichomes include the Colorado potato beetle, green peach aphid, potato leafhopper, potato flea beetle, and spider mites. You should find 100% of the seedlings with round white tubers. Source was NYL 235-4, released about 20 years ago by Cornell.
Red White and Blue This clone which I no longer have was a reddish purple skinned oval potato with blue and white flesh. Quite a combination, but the seedlings may throw even more surprises.
Suytu Vilquina One of the 4,235 reasons to save some old varieties of potatoes from the Andes. PI 642184. Solanum tuberosum L. Landrace. CIP 702244; SUYTU VILQUINA; Q 44476. Collected 08/24/2005 in Ayacucho, Peru. Latitude 13° 1' 12" S. Longitude 73° 58' 48" W. Elevation 3600 m. P. La Mar. Hacienda Paria (San Miguel). Primitive cultivar. Tuber moth resistance. Pink tubers should show up again. This one has good berry production and should be grown to prove you are a hero. www.rootsforlife.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/screenshot89.png as it could easily be one of those.
King Harry Ny 131 is the experimental name for this white potato with trichome hairs for insect resistance. It is an improvement over the Prince Harry, especially for flavor. The seedlings will segregate for the trichome hairs coming from S. berthaultii. If you grow these, I can help you identify the trichome hairs.
Gold Thumbs One of my colorful crosses has been Amarilla Eyes crossed to Thumb Dinger. This is a family from that cross that has hundreds of berries. All colors of fruits and it has colorful fruits to boot. This is a splendid diploid composite.
Redder Blood When I grew out seedlings from the Blue Blood Russet, I was able to get some good red flesh lines. This should segregate for mostly red skin, red flesh clones.
For the record, I have only 7 of the 32 clones left in my collection, therefore the TPS won't be available after this supply is gone.
Good Luck Tom I wish I could get a few TPS, but My finances are in Bad shape my Ex still gets her hands in my pocket at times. OH well, Are you going to sell any of the MMD crosses? I was hoping C.Mike could help me out with some MMDXOSU Blue and some melon seeds, but He is so Busy and my fingers are inching to get started on things. I assume that you will be adding more as time goes by the lumpers sound quite interesting. George W.

I am glad to get some of the suggestions folks here and elsewhere are offering.
I will make lots of decisions and will make countless changes, additions, etc., as time progresses.
I will provide for my version of Make My Day available. I have similar lines with blight resistance crossed to the OSU Blue that will be showing up as I post the varieties. If anyone thinks that blue and late blight resistant varieties need to be listed ....let me know....they may not be stable for all traits but I think folks will understand...nay...appreciate the diversity.
I will have much less time to rest it seems...with all the traffic already with comments going to the administrators...me and Rob...phone calls are frequent, but I enjoy those for the time being.
Back to my seeding for early starts and germination tests.
Hi Tom, Congradulation on you beautiful new site... Please post all the blue and blight resistant variety's you have! I am especially looking toward growing the smaller fruited blues. Putting together an order what else might you recommend if you have time to do so? loves some of the names... grapes of wrath! will have to get those. Also looking for deep oarnge spuds. How shall I order these with the site? Thank you.
This is also a beginners guide to local advertising on Facebook. I do however think that it is a great way to drive local people to your local business. Facebook is nearing 600 Million people that have joined their site. If you aren’t looking at Facebook as a major source of potential traffic then you are missing out on millions of people that could be making your money. Last year Facebook passed Google as the biggest traffic source in the US. They now dominate them by over 15 Million people a month
that Facebook is a growing and popular spot to plug business. I have not gone onto updating my profile and/or respond to links there because even as public as I am....it is embarrassment times twenty to have all kinds of things brought up from you past!
But I suppose my name and pictures could be relegated to the background if I, or others, promote the seeds and tubers on the website of New World Seeds & Tubers. However, I have no idea at the present how to garnish the traffic to my website.

One suggestion (not as to how to "garnish" traffic, but) regarding seed orders:
Send a confirmation of the order to the email address provided by the person ordering the seeds. I ordered tomato seeds earlier in the week, and have no idea whether the order was confirmed, packed or mailed.
