Dakota Ruby was released in 2014 by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. This variety produces reliable yields of uniform potatoes that are 4-6oz on average (smaller than Red Norland and Red Pontiac). The bright red skin is rich in antioxidants, and the color does not fade in storage or after cooking. If you want flashy red, round, B size potatoes with a smooth skin then this is your ticket! The breeder, Dr. Susie Thompson, has released five other potato favorites during her career at North Dakota State University.
Growing Guide: Less is more with fertilizer as yields are better without excessive nitrogen which can cause problems with skin setting.
Designed for the retail/gourmet market rather than processing, Dakotah Ruby is a firm, waxy-type potato that is best prepared boiled, in soups, and in salads. It has a good taste and does not require heavy seasoning to be thoroughly enjoyed.
"Naturally Grown" Seed Potatoes are Certified Seed Potatoes grown without use of chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, or synthetic-based fertilizers. Like our Certified Organic Seed potatoes, they are grown using natural and organic methods such as beneficial insects, crop rotation, cover crops, animal grazing, and increased plant diversity on the farm. The only factor prohibiting Organic Certification is the application of a foliar acid to desiccate the vines before harvest. The use of the desiccant (synthetic) dramatically helps reduce spread of aphid-carried disease in a crop, which can easily ruin an entire crop of seed potatoes as disease tolerance levels for Certification are extremely low. We are proud to offer this high-quality seed to you knowing it was grown with care in the spirit of organic.
