- Red La Soda is a high-yielding variety. Resistant to tip burn, and to wind, heat, and drought damage. The very early variety that has a high tolerance to heat, plants do not wither during heat and drought. Beautiful smooth red skin with pure white flesh. Tubers are oblong and slightly flattened with medium deep eyes. An excellent potato for boiling never loses its flavor. Known as the best storing red potato, will keep for months.
- Yukon Gold is a medium to high-yielding variety. Excellent storability. Long dormancy period. Plant these in your garden and you will have a goldmine of yellow-skinned, yellow-fleshed potatoes ready to harvest in 100 days. Potatoes are perfect for browning or your favorite recipe.
- White Kennebec is a hefty potato with an ovate to oblong shape and stouted ends. Its thin skin is layered with tones of creamy white and tan with a soft ivory flesh. The skin’s texture is semi-rough and speckled with shallow eyes. Its flesh is firm and moist, yet starchy, making it a versatile potato for culinary use. Kennebec potatoes have a rich, earthy, and nutty flavor when cooked.
