a.k.a. Judy's Red, Wolcottonian Red. Tubers look very much like Beaver Valley to me; perhaps with slightly deeper red/purple color on average. Last year it grew in an elongated shape I hadn't seen in a sunchoke before, but last year it grew in the same short stubby shape as the other reddish varieties. Have read that it tastes more mealy & "salty" than most, and unusually high in dry matter. To me, it is unusually hard-crunchy when raw (rather than tender-crisp like many others), and a bit less creamy than some when steamed. Will send small tubers Nov-April.
