Dwarf BrandyFred originated from a cross made by Vince Lavallo between Brandywine and Dwarf wild Fred named Tasty. Dwarf BrandyFred is a potato leaf dwarf variety that produces oblate medium large fruits that ripen to a dusky rose purple hue. The flavor is well balanced and intense, and the variety is quite prolific. This variety has been pledged to the OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative). These seeds have been grown and seed saved in Cork, Ireland.
The OSSI is working to maintain fair and open access to plant genetic diversity worldwide and ensuring freedom to use these resources for farmers, gardeners, breeders, and communities of this and future generations. Free the Seed!
