ORDER MULTIPLE VARIETIES IN 2 POUND INCREMENTS
Late Season. A Maine potato developed in 1941 and named for the mighty river, which bisects our state. This variety offers high yields of large round to oblong tubers with a firm, starchy white flesh. A great potato for baking, roasting, mashing but most known for its superior frying ability. It has been a popular variety for years, but this will be the last season we will offer Kennebec, it is going out of production next year. (110-120 DAYS)
Plant whole or cut into pieces (2-3) eyes each. Allow pieces to air dry for 24 hours. Place 6” apart in rows 3’ apart. Cover tuber with soil. Continue to cover as the vines grow by hilling soil, leaves, straw, or compost over the tuber. Leave only small portions of the growing plant exposed to promote more potatoes.
Maine Certified Seed Potatoes
All of our seed is Maine certified or foundation seed that has been field-tested throughout the growing season. Samples from each field have been tested for potato virus. Two pounds of potatoes will plant approximately 8’ row, 12 sq. feet, or 10 hills.
