The Idaho Burbank storage crop season has ended. Demand will shift to fresh-run new crop Norkotahs from Colorado, Idaho, Texas, and Washington until new crop Idaho supplies increase.
Idaho New Crop Norkotahs
Production of No. 2 potatoes will be extremely low as fresh-run Norkotah quality is excellent and dominated by No. 1 grade stocks

Size is dominated by 80- through 100-count potatoes; 40- through 70-count sizes are limited
Order lead-time and flexible loading dates will be needed for coverage

Fresh-run packer label supplies will be on the market while harvesting takes place
