Plant the potato tuber in soil that has been amended with compost or other organic matter. If planted in rows, rows should be spaced 3′ apart. Plant the potato 4″ deep with eyes up. Space potatoes 12″ apart. Sprinkle a light application of fertilizer formulated for vegetables at the bottom of the hole. Cover with 2-3″ of soil. As the plants grow hill up the soil around the plant covering all but 2″ of foliage. Continuing hilling every two weeks or so as the plants grow. Hilling keeps the plants cool and prevent the potatoes from forming near the surface where light will cause the tubers to turn green and become poisonous. Potatoes can also be grown in containers, follow the above instructions.
GMO FREE. These potatoes are NON-GMO. GMO stands for “genetically modified.” As more is learned about the environmental and health risks of genetically engineered foods, people around the world are demanding that food producers eliminate these so-called “Frankenfoods” from their products. While the law in the United States does not mandate that foods containing genetically modified ingredients be labeled, many proactive food producers have stopped using these ingredients and are now labeling their products as “GMO-free.”
