Their website says they can’t sell to US or Canada. They sound great. I wonder if they are GM?

I think the gent of Oxbox Farm in Connecticut is messing around with a Sarpo breeding program.

Has a youtube page under Oxbow Farm.

I believe you'd have  to get TPS (true potato seed ) and start your own line here.
That in itself is fraught with some peril, as potato seed has restrictions on its importation.

We have a Certified Organic farm in Northern Maine and grow Maine Certified Seed Potatoes.  We sell our seed directly to home gardeners and market farmers.  We are working with Sarpo varieties and are multiplying up Sarpo Mira.  We expect to have Sarpo Mira tubers for sale beginning Fall 2022.  Jim Gerritsen  www.woodprairie.organic
