So versatile -- great for baking, frying, or mashing.
100 days. An heirloom russet with flavor so rich and sweet it would be a crime to smother it in butter, German Butterball is an all-around potato you can rely on as your "main crop" for great year-round eating. You will fall in love with the creamy-sweet flavor even before you appreciate the heavy yields and long storage ability of this favorite!

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!).
