German Butterball Potato
German Butterball sets medium-sized oblong to round russets with yellow flesh, as if they'd already been covered in melted butter. Resistant to disease and scab, these taters look as good as they taste, maturing late in potato season on plants that refuse to be confined to their allotted space, but wander gloriously instead!
This plant grows tall, providing great shade protection for the potatoes with large, abundant foliage. Give it plenty of space (because it will take it even if you don't!) and let these flavor-filled roots mature slowly to perfection. You will absolutely love the flavor. German Butterball consistently wins taste tests, but it's also quite versatile, as happy being mashed as it is fried, baked, or boiled. Rely on it for homegrown potato goodness! 2½-pound bag, enough to sow 20 to 25 feet of row (plus extra for wandering!).
