Caribou russeted skin, white flesh It’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 U Maine 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. 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 applied for, certificate pending. Conventional only. NEW!

This item will ship on our regular shipping schedule, starting in early April with the warmest hardiness zones. We cannot ship this item any earlier; we regret that we cannot honor any requests to do so.

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.
