"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.

Dark Red Norland is the standard American red potato. It yields a variable 6-12 tubers per plant which come in a range of sizes, but the potatoes are overall a high percentage of #1 grade. Fast emergence and quick maturity make it an easy pick for Northern growers, but it is also well-adapted to all climates and soil conditions. Skin color fades to light red/pinkish in storage.
Growing Guide: Dark Red Norland produces high quality "new" potatoes, which are harvested early or during the season and eaten at full quality. Skins are delicate so be careful at harvest.
Disease Resistance Characteristics: Resistant to scab, hollow heart, early blight, black scurf, cracking and PVA. Susceptible to other potato viruses and late blight.
Ideal in potato salads and for mashed potatoes. Dry matter is low which is ideal for boiling. Works for frying as well. Baking is not recommended.
