A widely grown heirloom specialty variety often sold as a “baby” blue potato. Tubers are smooth, oblong, medium-size, with deep-blue to almost purple skin and brilliant purple, moist, firm flesh with slightly grainy texture. Excellent steamed, mashed, microwaved, roasted and chipped. This is the variety that is often used for making blue potato chips. Late maturity and long dormancy.
A popular gourmet variety which produces large, fingerling tubers with smooth, dark rose-red skin and waxy, yellow flesh lightly splashed with pink. Rather dry and flourlike, this outstanding potato variety offers an exceptional quality and delicious nutty flavor all its own. Excellent multi-purpose potato. Mid to late-season maturity.
One of the most popular potato varieties in the North East. Tubers are elliptical to oblong with smooth, creamy buff skin, shallow eyes, and white flesh. A high yielding, fast growing variety that is widely adapted. Standard spacing (12”) yields very large tubers. Plant closer (6-8”) to produce medium size tubers. Excellent all-purpose potato. Mid-season maturity.
Tubers are medium oblong, slightly flattened, with smooth red skin, shallow eyes and white flesh. Very good for boiling, frying and salads and often harvested for “new” potatoes in mid-summer. Dark Red Norland has a slightly darker red skin color. Early maturity
A fingerling potato with purple skin and dark purple flesh. An excellent tasting colored potato which is high in antioxidants and vitamin C. Excellent baked, boiled or fried. Maintains a dark purple hue when fried. Medium maturity.

Steamed and tossed with butter and parsley, these make a tasty late-summer dish. Resistant to scab, but susceptible to rhizoctonia and late blight. Early maturity.
Defender is high yielding, lightly russeted, and most notable for having foliar and tuber resistance to late blight infection. Defender is well suited for boiling, baking or fries. The tuber type is considered long white with buff-tan skin and eyes that are intermediate in number and evenly distributed. Tuber set is low, with average size typically medium, although large tubers are common. It has relatively short tuber dormancy.
Satina is a yellow flesh, yellow skinned variety with an oval to round tuber. Maturity is similar to Yukon gold but has a higher tuber set per plant. It has a beautiful appearance and rates very high for culinary characteristics. Early maturity
