This popular and easy to grow all-purpose red potato is high yielding and more heat tolerant than other varieties. The flavorful round or oblong tubers have thin, smooth, deep red skin and firm white sweet flesh perfect for boiling, baking, mashing, making salads, chips or fries. Matures mid-season but potatoes can be dug early for little “baby reds.”
Plant 12″ apart and as the plant gets taller, hill up the soil around the base of the plant to cover any tubers near the surface. Give vines room to spread, foliage gives plant more vigor. Harvest when the vines start to die back. Brush off dirt but don’t wash as being wet may cause tubers to rot. Air dry in a cool dark place.
