Easy and Reliable Gourmet Red Potato

PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING

Seed potatoes cannot be allowed to freeze. Once frozen, the potatoes will be unviable for sprouting.

Potato orders placed from anywhere in the US by October 31 will ship as soon as they arrive (see ETA above). Orders can’t be cancelled once they’ve shipped.

From Nov 1st until Mid/Late Spring, we will ONLY ship potatoes to CA, OR, WA, NV and AZ. If you live outside of these 5 Western states, we cannot ship potatoes to you as they will otherwise invariably freeze during transit. While your specific state might be having decent weather, your order will travel through very cold regions from our CA location to yours. While you certainly can place your order, we will only ship it when the threat of freeze across the nation is over, which typically is in April or May.


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, mid to late-season
  • High yield potential and resistant to common diseases
  • Great baked or any way you like it
  • Certified seed & certified organic
Planting Instructions:
  • Fall-planted spuds produce outstanding yields by May. If your area experiences hard winters (USDA Zones 1–7), or you tend to have long, wet spring seasons when rot might be a problem, plant potatoes in the spring.
  • One pound of seed potatoes will plant a row approximately 8' long with seed pieces spaced at 8 - 12" apart.
  • Plan on 1,200 lb/acre (600 lb of fingerlings) when rows are spaced 36" apart with 12" between plants.
  • Under optimal conditions, you can expect to harvest 10–15 pounds of potatoes for every pound of seed potato planted.

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!
