Individual Potato Varieties
Heirloom Russian Banana
Heirloom Cranberry Red
cute oblong fingerling potatoes originally came from the
Baltic region of Northeastern Europe. Tender Russian
Banana potatoes have thin skins with firm, buttercream
colored delicious flesh. They range in size from 3 to 4
inches long, with dense flesh that cooks up solid, keeps
its shape well and slices neatly.
fingerlings have a rich, chestnut-y flavor and waxy
texture perfect in potato salads.
You'll love them slowly roasted with whole garlic cloves, steamed to serve hot and
fragrant with butter and rosemary or parboiled to skewer
for the barbecue. Russian Bananas are heavy producers, good
keepers, widely adapted and drought tolerant. Late: 95-125 days
Red produces medium to large sized potatoes with
brilliant red skin and rose-swirled flesh. They are
perfect to harvest early, at 1 to 2 inches in diameter,
then quickly steam for a succulent feast of new
potatoes. Serve with a little sweet butter and chopped
dill or Italian parsley, or cook with baby peas for a
true gardener’s celebration.
Cranberry Red potatoes keep their pretty bright color
when cooked and make a gorgeous potato salad. Harvesting
those little new potatoes early won’t mean fewer big
ones later either, because Cranberry Red offers strong
yields and stores well, so you can enjoy their delicious
flavor and texture for months. Scab resistant. Somewhat
drought tolerant. Midseason: 80-95 days
Dark Red Norland
large, rounded potatoes have deep red, almost burgundy
colored skins and contrasting bright white flesh. A good
choice to dig for pretty little red skinned baby potatoes
early, then let plants produce bigger full-size potatoes for
Dark Red Norland tastes moist and smooth with a sweet,
delicate flavor and they make great tasting mashed potatoes.
These vigorous plants produce big, round to oblong, slightly
flattened potatoes with shallow eyes that bulk up rapidly
for early harvests. You'll relish them for weeks whether you
eat them simply boiled, mashed, hashed or in potato salads.
Dark Red Norland potatoes are widely adapted, and store very
well. Early: 60-75 days
Tender, moist flesh and buttery flavor have made Yukon Gold
a nationwide favorite. Their smooth yellow skins and
nutty flesh result from a cross between yellow and
white varieties; a perfect marriage for taste and
versatility. Yukon Gold potatoes are great for
anyone who loves potatoes but wants to avoid butter
or margarine because their natural buttery flavor
and color is "built in." They also seem to need less
seasoning than white potatoes.
Enjoy Yukon Golds every way you can think of: mashed, boiled, grilled, fried,
roasted or in soups, stews,
casseroles and chowders. This great all round
variety is high yielding and somewhat drought
tolerant. Early: 60-75 days
medium-sized, smooth-skinned potatoes are the truly
“butterless” potato because their melt-in-your-mouth
tender flesh is a rich, golden color that looks and
tastes already buttered. Carolas are originally from
Germany where yellow potatoes are preferred.
These yellow-fleshed potatoes have moist, creamy-sweet flesh and satisfying
texture; a favorite for oven roasting to a
rich golden-brown, as well as grilling, steaming, mashing or
frying. They add sensational flavor and texture to
soups and stews.
Carolas produce heavy yields of abundant tubers until frost. A
good choice for container growing if space is
limited. Excellent keepers. Late:
fine Irish-style potato, developed at Cornell
University, withstands adverse conditions well and
is more resistant to Colorado potato beetles, flea
beetles and potato leafhoppers than other varieties
because of its unique hairy leaves.
Well-bred King Harry potatoes have golden yellow
skins and white flesh with a waxy
and slightly moist texture that tastes delicious
either boiled and baked. For a lunchtime treat, we just microwave a big King Harry
potato to enjoy its nutty-tasting flesh as a simple
and very satisfying meal. High yields of
large, blight resistant potatoes that store
well. Midseason: 80-95 days
Blue potatoes have an elongated shape, almost solid
purple/blue flesh and better flavor than other blue
varieties. The natural blue pigment has extremely high
levels of anthocyanin, the potent antioxidant that can
help reduce the risk of heart disease and high blood
All Blue offers good table quality whether baked, boiled
or fried and makes a spectacular blue potato salad. For
a real stunner, serve a plate of steamed potato slices
alternating deep colored All Blue with Cranberry Red,
our red fleshed variety. Midseason: 80-95 days
from the original Russell Burbank,
Butte offers strong yields with higher vitamin
C and protein content than other varieties.
Enjoy them as steaming hot, flaky baked
potatoes - the best kind of nourishing comfort food.
These strong plants produce abundant big tubers with
the russeted skin and delicious dry, fluffy
white flesh that characterizes a perfect baking
potato. Ideal to grate for delectable potato
pancakes and unbeatable fluffy mashed potatoes as
well. A great potato for small gardens,
offering substantial yields of nutritious
tubers that store well for a long season of eating
pleasure. Early: 60-75 days
