Seed Potatoes 'Purple Majesty'

6 PIECES PER PACKAGE

Solanum tuberosum 'Purple Majesty'

Have you ever tasted home grown potatoes? Some say there is no comparison to store bought potatoes. Home grown potatoes are fresher, more flavorful and healthier for you. A small number of seed potatoes will yield a few buckets of potatoes ready to eat and enjoy and can even be stored throughout the winter months.

Bloom Time: Harvest early summer to fall

Hardiness Zone: 4-9 Find your zone

Exposure: Full Sun

Important Planting Information:

1) Before planting set your seed potatoes in a warm location (between 60 and 70 degrees F.) in full sun such as on a kitchen window sill, for one to two weeks. This will induce sprouting.

2) One day before planting, take a sharp, clean knife and cut the potato into planting pieces. Each piece should be approximately 1 ½ - 2 inch square, and must contain at least 1 or 2 eyes. (Eyes can be identified as the indentations or dimples on a potato) Small potatoes with a minimal amount of eyes may be planted whole.

3) Allow planting pieces to dry and form a callous over their cuts.
