Potatoes-German Butterball (Organic)

German Butterball potatoes are medium size, tan skin with yellow flesh that has a fantastic buttery flavour. Matures late in the season and disease resistant to late blight and scab. This is our number one customer favorite. Can be baked, roasted and mashed. An absolutely great mashed potato! The German Butterball potato won first place in Rodale’s Organic Gardening Magazine’s “Taste-Off Contest.”

We plant all of our potatoes after the Strawberry Full Moon, usually around June 15th. At this time the soil has warmed up and the life cycle of the potato beetle has passed. Your potatoes may rot if planted too early in cold wet soil and also, encourages the life cycle of the potato beetle.

Plant approx. 2 feet apart with compost and kelp in deep fertile soil. Kelp has over 60 trace minerals, is a natural growth hormone, pest deterrent and adds some frost tolerance. A little goes a long way. Check out our fertilizer and cover crop section.

Mulch your plants to maintain soil moisture, moderate soil temperature and smother weed seedlings.
