Important Shipping Information

November - April Shipping Restrictions

Due to the possibility of freezing temperatures during shipping, we are unable to ship these potatoes to the Mid-West, East Coast and Alaska between the months of November and April. If you live in one of these states, please order from our Spring-Planted Potatoes page.

Description

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.


Developed by Dr. Holm to replace the Sangre's deep eyes. Colorado Rose is a beautiful red skin potato that holds its color in storage and is bigger than the Bison.

  • Easy to peel and excellent mashed.
  • Works great in all the traditional red potato dishes.
  • Mid-season, 80+ days.

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.

Features

  • Container Compatible
  • Easily Established
  • For Baking (starchy)
  • Good for Beginners
  • Good Keeper
  • Roasting/Mashing (all-purpose)
