This plant is one of the S. American species of potatoes. This is one of the most frost hardy of potato species and grows in areas that can experience frosts on 300 days of the year. It can probably be grown in much the same way as potatoes are grown by planting out the tubers in spring and harvesting in the autumn[K]. It is sometimes cultivated for its edible tubers in the Andes, mainly as insurance against cold weather. Yields are quite low.Plants might have strict daylength requirements and may yield poorly in temperate zones because they need short-days in order to induce tuber-formation.A pentaploid species, it produces fertile seed.
