The Papa Chonca potato was discussed, IIRC, in the SEEDS subject, but since I've ordered and planted them, late BTW, and they are now thriving, it's time to show and tell.
The guy offering this variety said it's the closest thing to a perennial potato, so I felt compelled to have it.  It's still only August, so there's a chance of a small harvest, plus some may remain in the ground for next year.  We'll see...
