Goldrush Russet Potatoes are a great choice for the home garden! The Goldrush Russet is a great golden potato which matures in 110-120 days, or late season. This potato is EXCELLENT for storage and makes a good baking and boiling potato. This 5 lb. bag of seed potatoes will yield 50-75 lbs. of usable potatoes!

I ordered 5 lbs of seed potatoes. The were very big healthy seed potatoes. I cut them into pieces and planted them I got 62 pounds of potatoes off of the 5 pounds. That's 12 pounds per 1 pound of seed. That's is great. The size were great. Tasted really good too. We made mash potatoes with them last night and they were good. Plant growth was good as well and didn't get any disease. I will be purchasing again next year. The only negative was they could of shipped 2 or 3 weeks early.
I cut into segments about a week before planting. So far, so good. They have sprouted beautifully, already I am covering leaves with mulch, additional dirt. Hopefully it should be a wonderful harvest.
First time growing the variety this spring. So far plants are big. I plant them outside on March 29 in zone 7a. Hopefully by July I get a beautiful harvest.
These have been great despite squirrels planting peanuts that neighbors give them. The birds, fresh mulch, and our presence has deterred the squirrels a bit, but we’re glad these little guys grew despite them and colder than normal weather. Putting little bamboo canes also helped keep squirrels away from our grow bags, it’s just not as easy in ground.
