Description / 'Harvest Moon' Potato - 2 Pound Bag

Days to Maturity: 85 to 100

The 'Harvest Moon' Potato, a tuber vegetable, is a unique variety that produces round potatoes with an alluring dark purple skin that's both velvety and resistant to cracking. Inside, you'll find creamy, golden yellow flesh that offers a nutty flavor and a waxy texture. With low starch content, these potatoes are perfect for baking, frying, boiling, or mashing, and they retain their vibrant color when cooked. They're also rich source of dietary fiber, magnesium, potassium, and antioxidants, including anthocyanin and carotenoids.

Belonging to the nightshade family (Solanaceae), the 'Harvest Moon' Potato is an herbaceous perennial that's typically cultivated as an annual. This medium-sized, semi-erect plant produces light blue flowers and yields a generous crop of potatoes, with a high resistance to scab, promising a healthy harvest.

For optimal growth, plant these potatoes in a sunny spot with fertile, well-drained soil that has an acidic pH. Keep the soil evenly moist until the flowering stage, then reduce watering by half for the best texture and flavor.

As a cool-season vegetable, potato is one of the first to be planted in the garden. Direct sow in early spring, 2 to 3 weeks before the last frost date, as it requires cold temperatures to germinate and grow and can tolerate moderate frost.
