Good stuff
Reviewed By: Shon (Ogden, Utah)
They indeed did very well in my clay soil. Great results, ended up canning a bunch of them because there was too much to use.

Red Pontiac Potato
Reviewed By: Anthony Smullen (Mardela Springs, Maryland)
I planted 5 lbs of these in April and by July I had so awesome potatoes; so many that I was giving them away. A very easy plant to care for, I will be planting these every year.

Great choice
Reviewed By: Robyn Burgess (Emmett, Idaho)
We grew these for the first time last year. They grew awesome. Lots of potatoes, we still are eating from them. We even gave some to our neighbors to plant, they loved them too. One order was too much for just the two of us. Great buy as well.

Great flavor
Reviewed By: Linda Barnett (McClure, PA)
Great flavor in these redskins. Don't know how they are as keepers, because we eat them as soon as they are ready to harvest. Great crunch raw.
