Kennebec
Kennebec buff skin, white flesh The quintessential Maine potato. Very adaptable to various soil and growing conditions, rugged, but sweet on the inside, just like a true Mainer. Large uniform tubers store extremely well and resist late blight. Kennebecs are high yielding, resistant to dry spells and the last potato taken down by the leaf hopper. Shows susceptibility to verticillium wilt and rhizoctonia. Get your fields on a 4–7 year rotation to avoid this variety’s tendency to scab. Large plants have a dense canopy of white flowers. Available as organic and conventional seed. LBR

Additional Information

SEED POTATOES

Solanum tuberosum
Early potatoes mature in 65-80 days.
Midseason potatoes mature in 80-90 days
Late potatoes mature in more than 90 days

Fingerlings are long and thin, shaped like small fish or maybe even fingers, displaying various skin and flesh colors. Fingerlings are often prolific and disease-resistant. Though late maturing, the plants set heavily and small ones can be harvested early. Chefs, market farmers and home gardeners find these beautiful potatoes have unequaled flavor and culinary qualities.

LBR indicates field resistance to late blight.
