Prices for 40- to 70-count stocks are rising due to an increase in foodservice demand as well as diminishing Norkotah supplies. The remaining Burbank crop is dominated by 80- to 100-count supplies. Markon First Crop Burbank Potatoes are the primary variety being shipped, although some Norkotahs remain on the market.

  • Idaho 80- to 100-count cartons are abundant
  • Storage crop quality is very good: pressure bruising and hollow heart have been sporadic in large sizes (40- to 80-count potatoes)
  • 5/10-pound, 10/5-pound, and 6/8-pound retail bales are readily available
  • New crop harvesting is forecast to begin on August 3
