Cooking – Boiled, Baked, Roasted, Sauteing, and Grilling. Amarosa potatoes have a velvety texture and sweet creamy flavor, the brilliant bright flesh colour also holds well when cooked.
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.
