Charterhouse Green F1

This striking F1 seedling is one of 3 I'm growing from the same parents, although all are quite different. The newly named Charterhouse Green has the leaf colour of the pollen parent Tigrette (this I believe was an F1 variety named Tigrette Cherry F1, I'm unsure to the generation of seeds I have, but seed was saved from a plant with red striped yellow fruit.)  Growth currently is very compact on this potato leaf dwarf.

I'll be growing all three plants on, aside from the foliage colour it's interesting as well to have two potato leaf to one regular type. The mother plant was a compact potato leaf dwarf with yellow fruit ant very tasty.
