When handling live plant materials, we sometimes have failed crops. Unfortunatley we will not have the German Butterball this season.
SHIPS MID MARCH THROUGH END OF APRIL
SORRY WE CANNOT SHIP POTATO TUBERS TO: AK, HI, ID, APO, PR and FOREIGN COUNTRIES.
Heirloom. Late season. Gourmet heirloom with rose blushed skin and yellow flesh. Long tubers have a waxy texture with a moist buttery flavor. A favorite of our resident chef, Jef. Vigorous vines require steady water and rich soil to perform their best. Plants tend to set tubers near the surface so hill them up well for an abundant harvest that will keep through the winter. Strong resistance to scab.
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.
