Kennebec Potatoes Product Details

Botanical Name: Solanum tuberosum 'Kennebec' ; Family: Solanaceae (Nightshade Family)

Height: 2 - 3 feet.

Spacing: 12 to 15 inches.

Depth: 3 to 5 inches between plants and 30 to 36 inches between rows.

Spread: 18 - 24 inches.

Sun/Shade: Full sun.

Yield: 100 lbs. per 100 foot row.

Foliage: Green foliage.

Fruit: Very thin, smooth white skin, white smooth textured flesh. Oval shaped.

Days To Maturity: 80 - 100 days. Main season potato.

Form: Annual. Upright.

Soil Requirements: Fertile, well-drained sandy loam soil. pH 4.8 - 5.4. Will grow in higher pH, but sometimes becomes scabby.

Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.

Seed Count: 2 lbs. of seed potatoes will make approximately 10 - 15 potato sets when cut.

Comments: Whole sets will get off to an earlier start and produce higher yields. Stores well. Resistant to mosaic, late blight, net necrosis. Very dependable top yielder. Grows in any climate. Has very large leaf and vine habit. Fertilize at planting time. Mound soil over row as plants emerge to protect tubers from turning green in the sun. Harvest after tops turn yellow. Can be stored at 40 - 50 degrees F. (cooler temperatures turn starch to sugar and warmer temperaturess may cause them to sprout). Sprinkle a tablespoon of 10-10-10 fertilizer in the space between each potato piece. Do not apply the fertilizer directly to the potatoes as it can burn the tubers. After plants are 8 - 10 inches tall, use a hoe and pile several inches of soil up around the stems. This is called hilling. This prevents exposure to the sun which causes tubers to become green and inedible. Unable to ship to: AE, AK, GU, HI, ID, MT, PR.

I grew your kennebec potatoes for the first time last summer in hay. When I discovered the largest potatoe I had uncovered was half the size of our dinner plates I decided right then that these were the potatoes for us. they tased great and stored wonerfully.

Best Mashed Potatoes Ever
Reviewed By: Vinnie (Morgantown, WV)
First time growing potatoes and grew about 200 lbs worth in a 40 foot row. We had potatoes that weighed 3 pounds each. Not the best for baking potatoes but are superior for mashing.
