Actually, I've *never* ordered early enough from Moose Tubers to get what I want. I guess you order as soon as you get the catalog. I'll try again next year.
In April, I'm crossing my fingers that these seed potato varieties will be delivered to my tiny front-room:
1. Dark Red Norland: early variety, high scab resistance, dark red skin, high yield, good new potatoes
(Caribes were out of stock)
2. Rose Finn Apple fingerling: late summer variety, high scab resistance, "winged tubers" when planted too close? (I need to find out exactly what that means.)
3. Elba: late potate, resistant to most everything, excellent yields (my husband just said, "Able was I ere I saw Elba." It's a palindrome; he's a nut.)
*By the way, the Purple Vikings I wanted were not fingerlings. I like the idea of them as fingerlings. I will have no purple potatoes this year. This hasn't quite set in yet.
