- CommentsCompact plants, ideal for small gardens. Top quality cooking spuds. Very disease resistant. Heavy yields. Earliest maturing. Does not do well in soggy areas. Fertilize at planting time. Mound soil over row as plants emerge to protect tubers from turning green in sun. Harvest after tops turn yellow. Can be stored at 40 - 50 degrees F. (cooler temps turn starch to sugar and warmer temps may cause them to sprout).* SPRINKLE A TABLESPOON OF 10-10-10 FERTILIZER IN THE SPACE BETWEEN EACH POTATO PIECE. DO NOT APPLY THE FERTLIZER DIRECTLY TO THE POTATOES AS IT CAN BURN THE TUBERS. AFTER PLANTS ARE 8 - 10 INCHES TALL, USE A HOE AND PILE SEVERAL INCHES OF SOIL UP AROUND THE STEMS; THIS IS CALLED HILLING.
