Potato : German Butterball
This is my favorite potato, a round to oblong tuber with lightly netted golden skin that wraps around deep yellow flesh. Slightly mealy, this beauty is superb for everything – frying, baking, mashing, soups – you name it. Resistant to scab and viruses; some field resistance to late blight, but susceptible to rhizoctonia. Large upright vigorous plant with white blossoms.Solanaceae Solanum tuberosum
Mid to Late Potatoes:Potatoes are ripe when plant vines turn yellow and/or die back.
