Kennebec Potato

80-100 days. Kennebec is a wonderful all-purpose, high-yield Potato with great disease resistance, and it's widely adaptable, but it's most famous for its thin, pale skin and dense, smooth, low-moisture, white flesh that lends itself perfectly to frying. In fact, it was introduced by the USDA in the 1940s specifically for that purpose (both chips and fries), but modern gardeners know that it has a classic Potato taste and that it can be used for almost any purpose.

There is nothing like eating Potatoes from your own garden. Try these great mini tubers - small early-generation seed, for planting whole. All are vigorous and disease-resistant: expect increased yields over cut Potatoes.

We keep our Potatoes at the perfect temperature for long term storage in our warehouse, to keep them dormant for as long as possible before they ship to you with dormant eyes so that any sprouts that might have formed will not break off in transport, using up precious energy from the tuber. Before planting, keep the Potatoes in a cool, lit place (the refrigerator will not do) to further discourage the eyes from sprouting. The eyes will sprout and grow once the Potatoes are planted. The best planting time is two weeks before last frost; if planted too early, the shoots can be damaged by freezing temperatures (although they will usually regrow).

Potatoes like deeply dug, moderately fertile soil which has not been manured for at least one year. Plant tubers in rows 30" apart and spaced 12" apart in the row, 2" to 4" deep. Regularly hill soil up around leaves until mounds are formed. Harvest when tops begin to wilt and Potatoes are small for best flavor. Deer resistant.

Please note: we are not permitted to ship Potatoes to Alaska, Hawaii or Canada.
Your mini-tubers will be shipped to you in the spring at the proper time for planting in your horticultural zone.
