Solanum tuberosum Our favorite comfort food has proven to be an amazing source of nutrients and nourishment. High in vitamins, such as vitamin C, they rival broccoli as a source of phytonutrients. We offer only certified organic and disease-free seed potatoes. Easy to grow, we will include complete cultural directions with each order.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.

Culture
• Potatoes prefer fertile, loose, well-drained soil
• Forking beds is recommended
• Apply a fertilizer that is low in nitrogen and high in phosphorus such as bone meal — use 5-7 pounds per 100 square feet
• Proper soil pH of 5.2-6.0 will help avoid scab
• Irrigate thoroughly when needed, allow the soil to dry out somewhat before watering again
Hilling: as plants grow, cover with soil, mulch, or compost, while leaving top-growth exposed
• Repeat mounding process 3-4 times throughout season

Direct Sowing
• Plant potatoes up to 3 weeks before your last frost date
• Larger potatoes can be cut into smaller pieces to use as seed — allow the cut potato to heal before planting to prevent rot (2-3 days at 70°F)

Insects & Diseases
Common insects: Colorado Potato Beetle, Tuber Flea Beetle, Potato Aphid, Potato Psyllid, Potato Tuber Worm/Moth
Insect control: Azatrol, row covers
Common diseases: Early and late blight, white mold, botrytis, leaf roll virus, mosaic virus, verticilium wilt, potato scab
Disease prevention: 4 year crop rotation, and fungicide applications

Harvest & Storage
• "New" potatoes can be harvested from early varieties beginning 60 days after planting
• Once top-growth dies down, leave in the ground for 2 weeks and then harvest
• Dig tubers carefully, brush off soil and allow skins to dry before storing
• Standard potatoes yield about 10 times the amount originally planted
• Fingerling potatoes yield 15-20 times the amount originally planted
• Store in a dark location; 40-45°F and 90% relative humidity

We planted potatoes for the first time last year, using this variety pack. Although we had drought and other rough patches, we had a great yield, and the kids found it to be like a treausre hunt finding all the potatoes! We ended up eating them all. Hopefully we'll have a better yield this year, and can actually have them last through the winter.
