russeted skin, white fleshIt’s been more than 100 years since herds of woodland caribou graced the state of Maine. At least we can still claim the potato.
Named after the city of Caribou in Aroostook County, this 2015 UMaine release was bred for cool climates, which could be especially handy if we decide to follow those caribou herds up to Canada. Vigorous plants produce good yields of large oblong russet potatoes. Using organic practices, we’ve grown really big Caribou.
Great mashed, fried, or baked. Has an exceptionally low instance of hollow heart, a common problem of most russets. Moderately resistant to scab and verticillium wilt. PVP.
