Markon First Crop (MFC) Norkotah Potatoes are readily available in Idaho. Size is dominated by 70- through 100- count supplies. Prices have eased and will continue inching down.

New Crop Norkotahs

  • Norkotah quality is very good; yields are excellent due to ideal growing conditions
  • Minor skinning and excess moisture may be observed in fresh-run potatoes
  • New crop potatoes have not gone through the sweat process yet
    • Potatoes may release moisture as they cool, causing very light, white surface residue that can be easily be brushed off
    • The white residue will dissipate as potatoes dry and does not pose any quality problems

New Crop Burbanks

  • New crop Burbank harvesting will begin in late September/early October
  • MFC Burbank Potatoes will be packed once they move through their sweat process, approximately late October/early November
