(90-100 DAYS) Thin red skin with crisp white flesh mature to extra large round potatoes. Grows well in heavy soils. Multi-purpose, but excels as a mashed potato. Harvest some of these early for small round new potatoes.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS:

Plant whole or cut into pieces (2-3) eyes each. Allow pieces to air dry for 24 hours. Place 6” apart in rows 3’ apart. Cover tuber with soil. Continue to cover as the vines grow by hilling soil, leaves, straw, or compost over the tuber. Leave only small portions of the growing plant exposed to promote more potatoes.

Maine Certified Seed Potatoes

All of our seed is Maine certified or foundation seed that has been field tested throughout the growing season. Samples from each field have been tested for potato virus. Two pounds of potatoes will plant approximately 8’ row, 12 sq. feet, or 10 hills.
