Description / 'Yukon Gold' Potato - 2 Pound Bag

Days to Maturity: 70 to 90 from direct sow

'Yukon Gold' Potato is so richly flavored that your guests will ask if you already added the butter. This superb baking variety sets an early harvest of large, scrumptious spuds you will find irresistible in soups and side dishes as well as straight from the oven.

'Yukon Gold' Potato is the most popular yellow-skinned variety for baking, and it's easy to see why. It harvests early—closer to 70 days than 90, and far ahead of the 100 to 110 typical of midseason types. The tubers are rounded, blocky, and packed with succulent flesh, with thin skins just perfect for eating. (That's where all the vitamins are hiding, too.) Although it's classified as a "dry" type best suited for baking, I find it superb boiled or fried too. The spuds range from 4 to 10 ounces, so I save the big mongo ones for baked potatoes, and turn the others into soups, stews, and veggie medleys.

The 'Yukon Gold' Potato plant grows just 12 to 18 inches tall but spreads up to 4 feet wide, and each 2-pound bag of plants will sow up to 25 feet of row and yield 20 to 30 pounds of potatoes. These plants are grown from disease-free stock, and for my money they're the best potatoes on the market today.

Like all potatoes, 'Yukon Gold' Potato 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.
