Red Pontiac Potato Certified (Red Pontiac Potato)

Generic



Spring-Planted Certified Organic & Non-GMO Seed Potatoes

This large round potato has thin, light red skins, deep eyes, and crisp white flesh. Excellent for mashed potatoes and general use. Heat-tolerant, long-storing, and high-yielding. One precaution about this variety: the skin is so thin it should allowed to cure and firm up for a week or two in the ground after the vines die back.

Planting & Care

  • 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.
