Aphrodite is a variety from the Garden Larder breeding/selection program. The tubers are cream coloured with pink eyes. It is an average producer of 1/2 to 1 kg per plant. Tubers vary in size.Cook like potatoes, usually roasted until soft, but can be microwaved or added to stews. If you leave the tubers to dehydrate they become sweet, often sweet enough to eat like you would dried fruit.
