I planted as a test 10,000 of these last year and was really pleased with how long they kept in fact I just ate the last ones this month january from a harvest that happened in june. I sold that last 400 pounds or so in december and just maybe 2 percent wanted to grow tops but they all were solid and no rotten ones. Good flavor and good size with better care and fertilizer I’m sure they would yield better and bigger. Only bad was they did have a smaal percentage of yellows mixed in but over all I was pleased.
