Red Seed Potato (50Lb/Bag)
A properly prepared garden soil is essential for good results, large potatoes and a maximum crop. A well-mixed, softer light loam soil that drains well is best with a pH of 5.8 - 6.5. Plant as early as early as possible in the spring, as soon as the ground can be worked. Frost protection is necessary when the plants are young. Choose a spot with full sun. Dig a trench at least 6" deep, and place the seed potato with at least one eye, facing up. Cover with a couple of inches of soil. Hill the soil around the potato plant as it grows to keep the soil loose, and prevent the potatoes from being exposed to direct sunlight. Water maturing plants approximately 1" per week. Potatoes can be harvested in 2 - 4 months. Red Pontiac - A full-flavored red with thin, red skin, shallow eyes and sweet white flesh.
