Late Season. Thin red skin with crisp white flesh. Large, round potatoes when mature but can be harvested early for baby potatoes. Grows well in heavy soils. This is a multi-purpose potato but is especially nice mashed. Stores well.

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.

    Impressive Potato!

    The Red Pontiac potatoes have been wonderful! We're half way through our harvest and the yeild from 2 lbs of planting potatoes has been plenty for our family of three. These potatoes make outstanding mashed potatoes! No need to add milk or cream as they boil up moist and tender. Some of the tubers have been huge but there's no diminished quality in the big potatoes. We've had plenty for fresh eating and have been able to freeze 6 family size portions of mash for winter dinners and we're only 1/2 way through the patch.. The plant vines spread - a lot. Give them plenty of room. And the vines are slow to die back. It's Oct 1 and they show no signs of slowing down. I finally started digging out of curiousity and found plenty of big potatoes!
