Nutrition content. Also read that purple potatoes help lower blood pressure. These are purple throughout and are touted to maintain their color, as opposed to other purple varieties.

Do you know how much a one pound plant will produce? Trying to determine how many to order. Thanks in advance! Tommy T
Tommy T on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The old estimate is a 1:10 ratio, so if you plant 1lb of seed potato, you should harvest 10lb of potatoes. The better the soil (loamy, nutrient-rich) the better the yield!
are this indeterminate or determinate plants ?
Todd W on Mar 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are determinate.
What size fabric bag is best for planting potatoes?
msmith2629 on Mar 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Grow bags come in various sizes, with the 10-gallon bags being the most popular. We've seen large ones ??? as large as 1,000 gallons. For planting potatoes, the grow bag's size can influence the yield of the potatoes planted in the bag.
Hi! Are these considered determinate or indeterminate??? Looking for a purple indeterminate! Thanks!
Leah S on Mar 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: From what I know late season potatoes are the indeterminate potatoes. Purple Adirondack is a mid season so it???s probably not indeteminate. I don???t know of any purple fleshed potatoes that are late season. But you could try doing two plantings of really early varieties back to back, some are only 60 days.
Why can't they be shipped to my state? (Blue potato)

Grew amazingly.
Easy to grow and grew abundantly. Not my favorite flavor of potato, but not bad at all either. Made for fun mashed potatoes for the kids... not you need to make mashed potatoes fun for kids.

Blue Chips
This blue potato made for delicious oven baked chips.I had an odd planting season and the plants were not impressive at first, but the blue flowers were pretty and the harvest was more than I had anticipated considering the small size of the plant. I recommend the Adirondack blue potato if you like chips.

Big waste of money.
Took over a month before they shipped the seed potatoes (three different types), and it was well past the time window of when I wanted to get them in the ground. When I finally got them planted, they never sprouted, and just rotted in the ground. Meanwhile I acquired seed potatoes from a local source, and had a 99% success rate at sprouting with those.I wasted time, money, and garden space on these seed potatoes from Maine.
