Product Details
Ship Season: both Spring & Fall
Height: 2 - 3 feet.
Bloom Time/Days To Maturity: Main season potato. 80 - 100 days.
Zone: 3 - 9 annual.
Sun/Shade: Full sun.
Spacing: 12 to 15 inches.
Depth: 3 to 5 inches between plants and 30 to 36 inches between rows.
Spread: 18 - 24 inches.
Yield: 100 lbs. per 100 foot row.
Comments: Whole sets will get off to an earlier start and produce higher yields. Stores well. Resistant to mosaic, late blight, net necrosis. Very dependable top yielder. Grows in any climate. Has very large leaf and vine habit. Fertilize at planting time. Mound soil over row as plants emerge to protect tubers from turning green in sun. Harvest after tops turn yellow. Can be stored at 40 - 50 degrees F. (cooler temps turn starch to sugar and warmer temps may cause them to sprout). Sprinkle a tablespoon of 10-10-10 fertilizer in the space between each potato piece. Do not apply the fertilizer directly to the potatoes as it can burn the tubers. After plants are 8 - 10 inches tall, use a hoe and pile several inches of soil up around the stems. This is called hilling. This prevents exposure to the sun which causes tubers to become green and inedible.
