(90-100 Days)
Mid to late season. Keuka Gold is a rich-flavored, oval-shaped, yellow-fleshed and buff skinned potato. While Yukon Gold is the premier potato grown by many home gardeners, Keuka Gold has been its rival since being introduced by Cornell University in 2004. It was bred to handle the variable weather conditions of the northeastern United States with its uneven rain and fluctuating temperatures. A strong performer when grown under organic conditions with high, uniform yields. Tolerates most soil conditions. Resistant to scab and golden nematode with great storage abilities. An all-purpose potato used boiled, baked, or roasted.

 

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.
