Siberian has consistently been one of the latest maturing varieties.  Tuber size is inconsistent, with many small potatoes and a few large ones being typical.  In two years of trials, low yields have been reported from Victoria growers (Saanich, Metchosin, Victoria) while higher yields are reported from all other locations (Caledon, ON, Gananoque, ON, William’s Lake, BC and Winlaw, BC).
