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.
The medium to large tubers with smooth thin red skin with shallow eyes have light-yellow to white flesh and great flavor. They store well and are moderately resistant to scab. This variety was developed at North Dakota State University for northern climates and provides high yields.
