Planting – Place potatoes 4-5” deep and 12-16” apart with at least 3 feet between rows. Cover potatoes with 2-3” of soil. Larger potatoes can be cut prior to planting. Ensure there is an equal number of eyes on each cut piece.
Growing – Hill plants once they begin to emerge from the soil. Continue to pull dirt up around the plants as they grow. Keep the soil moist, but not overly saturated during the growing season. Containers may need daily watering.
Harvest – Flowering is often an indicator young potatoes are almost ready to harvest. For winter storage, potatoes should remain in the ground until light frosts or natural maturity dry down the leaves and stems.
Sandra McTavish –
I grew these last year along with Russian blues and indeed the all blue was all blue. Very tasty too! I noticed that the all blue tended to have bigger potatoes. Not sure if that was by chance or not.
I love these potatoes – I call them amethyst jewels. The dark colour makes it harder to see when harvesting but so worth it. I’ve been growing Russian Blues for years but I find the All Blue much creamier – not as dry and the Russian blues. Love the Arizona too for taste!
