Seed potatoes cannot be allowed to freeze, therefore, special shipping is required during the Fall/Winter months. Seed potatoes will ship via FedEx Ground To Zones 2-4 only and ships via FedEx 3 Day to Zones 5-8. Shipments to zones 5-8 will only ship on Monday's and Tuesday's (to ensure the potatoes do not sit in a FedEx terminal over the weekend). Orders can’t be cancelled once they’ve shipped.
Potato orders placed up to October 31 will ship as soon as potatoes arrive (ETA 11/14). However, moving forward, 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.
Organic Yukon Gold is our best seller and an excellent keeper. Attractive, smooth, thin yellow skin, shallow eyes, yellow flesh and uniform yields. Lends itself well to any method of potato preparation. Immensely popular since its 1981 release from Canada.
If you like your fried potatoes golden brown, Yukon Gold will almost turn that color by themselves. Yukon Gold is also favored by top chefs for making traditional mashed potatoes. With Yukon Gold, your mashed potatoes will be golden and beautiful to both the eye and the taste. When first harvested, Yukon Gold shows unique pink eyes not seen in other yellow varieties.
