Turchesa Potato

History
In Gran Sasso National Park, an ancient potato variety has been rediscovered and recovered: the so-called turchesa potato. This potato has been named after the color of its skin. Many elderly people remember it, but it has disappeared from their tables. The project aims at reintroducing and studying this variety starting from the very few tubers that have been found in the original production area - Isola del Gran Sasso (TE) and San Pietro di Crognaleto - but also in other Municipalities and at different altitudes, to assess its behavior, agronomic and sensorial features, in order to reduce the risk of complete extinction.
