Item #29531


Mid-season variety | High yields

Days to Maturity: 85 to 100

'Harvest Moon' Potato is grown as a tuber vegetable. The round spuds have velvety, crack-resistant, dark purple skin and creamy golden yellow flesh with a nutty flavor, waxy texture, and a low starch content. Enjoy them baked, fried, boiled and mashed, or cut up for potato salad. They hold their color well when cooked and offer a particularly pretty plate presentation. Potatoes are a good source of dietary fiber, magnesium, and potassium. Purple potatoes are also packed with antioxidants, especially anthocyanin and carotenoids.

An herbaceous perennial, typically grown as an annual, 'Harvest Moon' Potato is a member of the nightshade family (Solanaceae). The medium-sized, semi-erect vining plant blooms in light blue flowers and produces high yields of potatoes per plant. They have a high resistance to scab.

Potatoes grow best in sunny locations with fertile, well-draining soil, having an acidic pH. For best texture and flavor, soils should be kept evenly moist until flowering stops. Then, cut water in half.

A cool-season vegetable, one of the first to be planted in the garden, potato can be direct sown into the garden in early spring 2 to 3 weeks before the last frost date. It needs cold temperatures to germinate and grow and tolerates moderate frost.
