Excellent flavor
Reviewed By: Susan (Southwest, OH)
We grew these potatoes in 2011. Ended up with a lot of oddly shaped potatoes that taste wonderful! Our extended family could not get enough - never knew there could be so many raves over plain boiled potatoes (they weren't patient enough to wait for me to do anything more with them, folks liked them that much). They also slice up and dehydrate well, too, making tasty au gratin potatoes long after the season is over. These potatoes produced well even though it was my first year growing potatoes (and I definitely did not do everything right). We planted them in soil that had a lot of aged shredded leaves tilled in.

Yum
Reviewed By: Jerry (Sebastopol, California)
I planted Goldrush two years in a row. I got a great harvest and good sizes. We like the good potato flavor boiled and baked. We'll keep growing this variety, its good for us. Our Irish neighbors think its great also.

great potato
Reviewed By: Kristi C (Strathcona, MN)
Planted this variety last year and could hardly belive how well they did. Large potatoes, nice flavor, no hollow heart, which I have had problems with in the past. Good yeild, or better than expected. Will plant again.

loved these
Reviewed By: angela (allendale, mi)
I think we had to harvest these early, so yield was probably not as good as it could have been. First year planting potatoes, and I am excited to plant these again. Beautiful white flesh and chocolate brown exterior..best mashed potatoes we've ever eaten. I've never described a potato as lovely, but these were!

No Success
Reviewed By: Tanya (Canton, Georgia)
As a novice, didn't have any luck with these. Will try one more time, as they seem as though they would be a wonderful crop if successful. Hopefully, second time will be a charm. If not, I'll move on.

Great Potatoes
Reviewed By: Jason Canen (Logan, Utah)
Well this is the 2nd year I've grown these and they have all done great. I was amazed last year with the size of some of them. We harvested 45 pounds of potatoes. We had some that were almost the size of a dinner plate. I thought for sure they would be hollow, but they were like rest. Really good. Those big ones we used in stews. These are well worth the buy.

First time I ever planted potatoes. These definatly didn't disappoint. Used them in various ways; mashed, fried, baked, grilled. No disease problems whatsoever. Looking forward to ordering more for next year.
