Red Norland Potato

Colorful Early Variety

Red Norland's compact plants make it an ideal potato variety for smaller gardens. Enjoy early yields of extra-large tubers with thin red skins and white, fine-quality flesh. The small eyes and thin skins make peeling easy! An excellent potato for boiling and salads. This early maturing variety is ready in just 70 days! Shows good resistance to bothersome scab. Did you know that Gurney's offers whole seed potatoes? These seed potato sets may be stored several weeks longer prior to planting and will produce up to 20% more than precut potatoes. Potatoes grow best in well-drained, sandy loam soil. Red Norland Potato does not do well in soggy soil.

  • Comments: Compact plants, ideal for small gardens. Top quality cooking spuds. Very disease resistant. Heavy yields. Earliest maturing. Does not do well in soggy areas. Fertilize at planting time. Mound soil over row as plants emerge to protect tubers from turning green in sun. Harvest after tops turn yellow. Can be stored at 40 - 50 degrees F. (cooler temps turn starch to sugar and warmer temps may cause them to sprout).* SPRINKLE A TABLESPOON OF 10-10-10 FERTILIZER IN THE SPACE BETWEEN EACH POTATO PIECE. DO NOT APPLY THE FERTLIZER 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 OT THE SUN WHICH CAUSES TUBERS TO BECOME GREEN AND INEDIBLE.Unable to ship to: AE, AK, GU, HI, ID, MT, PR.
