Salem conventional

buff skin, white flesh Midseason sister of Elba. Loved dearly by storage-crop connoisseur Tim Libby.

Generously impressive yields on these plants will have your bushel baskets brimming with dependable all-purpose potatoes. They store well into the winter, and their roundish-oblong shape and earthy flavor make them an exceptional roasting potato.

Bred at Cornell as NY-84 and released unofficially in Salem, NY. The plants emerge quickly and bulk up fast. Resistant to scab and golden nematode. Conventional seed only.

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.
