Fall-Planted Organic Burbank Russet Seed Potatoes (lb)

Fall-Planted Organic Burbank Russet Seed Potatoes (lb)

The most popular grown potato in America.

Fall-Planted Certified Organic & Non-GMO Seed Potatoes

Russet skin, shallow eyes, and white flesh are characteristic of this long-oval russet. Most widely grown potato in the U.S., originating from Luther Burbank’'s early plant breeding. This is the potato that made Idaho famous.

  • 100+ days, late season
  • Long-storing and scab-resistant
  • Great baked fried or boiled
  • Certified seed potatoes & certified organic
  • Needs a consistent moisture supply

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.

My potatoes look fabulous

I ordered them and when they arrived , I read the paper that came with them about how to prepare the seed potatoes and how to put them in the ground. There were more details, so I still refer back to it. Now, my plants are big and lovely. I just hilled them, and am excited to see what’s going on under there in good time!

Bad for future business

I ordered these potatoes to plant in the spring. I thought that you'd mail them out when the time is right for planting in Michigan, like all the other companies do. Now, I have seed potatoes and nowhere to plant them until spring! Hope they don't rot! Not happy!
