Description / Kennebec Potato - 2 Pound Bag

Days to Maturity: 80 from direct sow

For a potato that's been around since World War II, Kennebec Potato sure gets a lot of attention and praise. The choice of fine restaurants and gourmet cooks everywhere, it's also the home gardener's favorite for early, generous crops that taste delicious and store well. Give it a try this season and we predict it will become your go-to tater, too.

Kennebec Potato is a large, oval potato with a thin tan skin (easy to peel), few pockmarks or craters, and firm, dense white flesh. It is good for baking, chipping, mashing, scalloping, and boiling. Superbly disease-resistant (it was developed by the USDA), it adapts to gardens in all climates and conditions across the U.S., and was originally selected in Maine. In other words, this is a homegrown potato that anyone can grow and everyone will love.

Finishing earlier than most others, Kennebec Potato also delivers a few extra spuds in every harvest, too. Possibly this is because of its terrific disease-fighting capabilities, which keeps the plants healthy and highly productive. Kennebec is resistant to potato leafroll virus, late blight, black leg, fusarium (dry rot), phoma rot, potato wart, and two types of potato virus. You just can't beat it for ease of care and successful crops every time.

Expect these plants to reach just 8 inches high but spread 18 to 24 inches wide in fertile, well-worked, well-drained soil. Like all potatoes, Kennebec fares best in sandy, enriched soil, but if you have heavy or clay soil, just use a raised bed or plant the tubers more shallowly, mulching them well with straw.
