Early season. Round to oblong shape. Light brown skin, yellow flesh. Strong producer with some scab ad disease resistance. Excellent storage qualities, including keeping a new potato texture and moisture. Can be prepared in many ways.
|Late Season. Long oval shape. Red skin with cream colored flesh. Developed in the Netherlands about 50 years ago, they are a popular potato with drought resistant qualities, moderate resistance to scab, and good storage.|
|Late Season. Long oblong shape. Light brown to golden skin with deep yellow flesh, so it looks much like the Yukon Gold. While resistant to scab and viruses and with resistance to late blight, it is susceptible to rhizoctonia. Versitile for cooking.|
|Mid Season. Oblong shape that is sometimes lumpy. Brown skin and very white flesh. Good late blight resistance. Good under stressful condiditons, giving high yeilds. Good baking potato, and excellent cooked in other methods, too.|
|Mid to late Season. Oblong with gold skin and flesh. Resistant to scab. Has a waxy texture that makes it hold its shape in salads and works well in all cooking methods. It's flavor is often called a nutty potato, but we found that it simply has a strong potato flavor that is slightly sweet.|
|Early Season, only 70 days. Brown skin with yellow flesh. Round potato with "babies" underneath the main potatoes. Because of short dormancy and fast growth, it can be double cropped, this is good for market growers. Best boiled or steamed.|
|Early Season. Oval shaped with brownish skin and golden yellow flesh. Extremely popular in US. Good flavor. It stores well. We have found that it does best in summer growing conditions, and goes to smuts in cold weather and rain.|
Early to mid-Season. A golden crescent-shaped fingerling with deep yellow flesh. The waxy and firm texture is delicious for salads or roasting. This variety is almost identical to Banana Fingerlings.

The price for seed potatoes includes shipping to our farm. Shipping is $11.00 for each 50 lb bag.
Several years ago, Marilyn of Abundantly Green organized a group buy of seed potatoes from a grower in Colorado. Kitsap County does not have a farmers’ co-op for buying large amounts of seed at a grower price. However, if we can put in one order of over 1000 lbs of seed, we can get really good prices for good seed. There are Certified Organic potatoes and Conventional potatoes. Not all varieties are available in both types.
