High Yield Late Season Russet

Please Read Before Ordering:

Seed potatoes cannot be allowed to freeze therefore, special shipping is required during the Fall/Winter months. Seed potatoes will ship FedEx Ground To Zones 2-3 Only, Zones 4-8 Ships Via FedEx 3 Day. Orders from zones 4-8 will only ship on Monday and Tuesday (to ensure the potatoes do not sit at FedEx over the weekend). Orders can’t be cancelled after they’ve shipped.

However, from Nov 1st until Mid/Late Spring, we will ONLY be shipping potatoes to CA, OR, WA, NV, AZ.

If you do not live in these 5 Western states, we will not ship potatoes to you as they will otherwise invariably freeze during transit. While your specific state might be having good 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 when the threat of freeze across the nation is over, which can be as late as April or May.

Here's a russet bred and grown from the waters of the Rio Grande River. You'll be amazed at how nice and uniform this one looks at harvest. Light russet skin and white flesh.

  • 100-130 days, late-season
  • High yield potential and resistant to common scab
  • 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.
