Early Season. Yukon Gold Potato has yellow, waxy flesh, a creamy consistency, and a rich, buttery flavor when cooked. A wonderful potato for grilling, roasting, boiling, and frying. Frequently used in gratins, hash browns, and yes! French fries. The flavor and texture of this potato allow it to work well with cream, butter, cheese, and eggs. It also works nicely with herbs such as oregano, basil sage, and tarragon. Smooth golden-brown skin is free of eyes, stores very well, and is incredibly versatile. (70-90 Days)

 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 the 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 viruses. Two pounds of potatoes will plant approximately 8’ row, 12 sq. feet, or 10 hills.
