Wendy, it would not be possible to send slips/tubers across the border, but if you ever got some berries I would love to be in line for TPS...
Thanks for your consideration.

Of course I'd also love to try Moie-Moie TPS, but for next year I'd settle for another try at Mystery, if that would be OK after the first ones died from neglect in 2010 due to tomato absorption.

Yes, Rebsie and her Shetland potatoes are quite interesting, and her blog and Tom's forum are good information sources.

Wendy, if you have more tubers to share than people to accept them, you can add me to the list. Bump me to the bottom of the list (or off) should more experienced potato growers come along, though.

Cortona ok. I put you down for TPS as well. I rather have some onion seeds from your valley Your tomatoes are growing nicely here! Thanks again.
I am still waiting for the potato slip to begin to sprout. It is still dormant I guess...

I am closing the offer on slips/tubers or tps now.
I will inform folks of how it develops. I have mystery TPS segregation going well. The last 2 slots can be for those if anyone desires a tiny tuber to try to help Richard select for a mystery true blue or shall we call it kiwi blue ?.

I think its best to keep to the name Urenika for the blue/purple that is grown from the TPS of Mystery because that's what it throws back to in appearance,unlike the parent Mystery which is a round potato.

I do wonder how long it will take before both of the potato slips start growing some shoots,mind you they have only just come out of the end of my season so it may take a while.

Richard, I fear the same, it's been more than a week and the slips look as they were when recieved. The good think is that has not grown mold or gone soft.

The segregation from Mystery will remain unnamed I will definetively look for your advice on the name convention. Have you name your? What about that slip the name can be urenika mystery? My unknown blue F2 is still unnamed as well. Once I select clones and discard others then I might think of a name for those who are growing my TPS this year use as suggestions.

I wonder if they might need some kind of chilling,what about they were in a container of sand in the fridge for a month or so.??
Hopefully Tom may have ideas
