Red Potatoes

Organic Desiree Potato



The most popular "red" potato in Europe. Round to oblong tubers, satin-like pinkish/red skin and gourmet quality creamy-yellow flesh. Prolific yields of excellent all-around cooking potatoes. Very resistant to common diseases. An easy and very reliable gourmet potato to grow. (80-100 days)

Potatoes are simple to grow and reap pounds and pounds of rewards!

• Our potatoes are certified seed & certified organic.

• Harvest 10-15 lbs. of potatoes for every pound planted under optimal conditions.

• Fall-planted spuds produce outstanding yields by May. However, if your area experiences hard winters (USDA Zones 1-7), or you tend to have long wet seasons when rot might be a problem, plant potatoes in spring.

• Instructions:

- Complete planting information is included with your shipment.

- One pound of potatoes will plant a row approximately 8' long with seed pieces spaced at 8"-12" apart.

- Plan on 1,200 lbs/acre (600 lbs. of fingerlings) when rows are spaced 36" apart with 12" between plants.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful!

Vigorous and beautiful plant with fine skinned, pretty tubers! They've been excellent keepers for me, too! I planted four varieties last spring and while the remainder of the other three are starting to get rubbery and funny looking, these Desiree are still as crisp and lovely as when I pulled them out of the dirt months ago!
