Sample several different potatoes with different colors and textures for every dish.
Because different potato varieties are suited to different applications (see Recipes & Tips tab), this is not a blend, the potatoes are separated for ease of use.
Each sampler contains an even mix of the following varieties:
Shipping Limitations: Because our heirloom potatoes are hand selected, cleaned, packed, and shipped by the family of farmers who grow them, potato shipments are only sent out once per week. Shipments usually go out on Tuesdays, but can vary based on the farmers’ available time due to harvesting demands, etc.
Storage: Store heirloom potatoes in a paper bag or box in a cool, dark & dry place.
Shelf Life: Heirloom potatoes' shelf life varies with the season and the ambient humidity in your area. Here are some rough guidelines:
Summer through Winter: generally 2-3 months.
Spring: up to four weeks.
