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.

CULTURE: Potatoes grown in loose, well-drained soil produce the best yield. Up to 3 weeks before your last frost date, plant seed potatoes 4-6 inches deep, 12 inches apart, in rows 12-24 inches apart. Larger potatoes can be cut to use as seed. Be sure to leave at least 3 eyes per piece. If soils are heavy, plant 2-3 inches deep and cover with 2-3 inches of mulch. Irrigate heavily when needed, and allow the soil to dry out somewhat before watering again. Mulching will help prevent sunscald. Apply a fertilizer that is low in nitrogen and high in phosphorus. Bone meal is a good choice. Use 5-7 pounds per 100 square feet.
HARVEST: Many varieties die-down on their own to let you know they are ready to harvest. If the plants are still growing and your potatoes have reached that perfect size, you can stop growth by breaking or cutting off the plant foliage. Potatoes should be left in the ground for about 2 weeks after vines have died or have been cut down. This allows the skins to set and increases storage ability. Standard potatoes yield about 10 times the amount originally planted. Fingerling potatoes yield from 15 to 20 times the amount originally planted.
STORAGE: Store potatoes in a relatively dry location and at the lowest temperature possible without freezing.

Super-producer with a history

Settlers in Ohio raved about Mtn. Rose potatoes in the 1840s & 1850s--how much more productive it was, flavorful, holding well in storage. I was thrilled to find it available--and in my heavy Iowa soil, it's the highest producer I've ever had, by far. Great flavor, fun color, bakes & boils well, and holds all winter in cold storage. My go-to potato from now on.

I just had my first new potato tonight and these were heavenly. One of those epic potato experiences I plan to repeat.
Excellent Potato!

I grew Mountain Rose for the first time last year, and this will be a regular from now on. They taste great, produce heavy, and the reddish interior is quite a show-stopper in some dishes. I made mashed potatoes with them once and they looked like light pink cotton candy. Their flavor is wonderful.
