LIVE TUBER

SHIPS MID MARCH THROUGH END OF APRIL

SORRY WE CANNOT SHIP POTATO TUBERS TO: AK, HI, ID, APO, PR and FOREIGN COUNTRIES. 

(110-125 Days)

Late season. A rare variety which can be difficult to find. We couldn't resist selecting this one. The name alone had us, but the high resistance to late blight made it irresistible. A mixture of round to oval tubers with light yellow skin and dark yellow flesh. Stores great all winter. Taste is amazing boiled, baked or any way you like it.

PLANTING

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.
