Prettiest vines, wonderful potatoes
I live in the Memphis, TN metro area. Vardaman is one of the easiest varieties to grow in our area, with beautiful purplish leaves on relatively short vines. The vines are so beautiful that I have grown these in my front yard as an ornamental, but with a tasty bonus also coming in late September. The tubers themselves are tender and flavorful with less stringiness than most other varieties. I highly recommend them.
