UPDATE: White Russet Potatoes

July 12, 2016

The current crop of White Russet potatoes will be depleted by end of this week. The new crop White Russet Potato harvest will begin in August, but stocks will not be available for shipment until October.   

  • New crop supplies must go through the sweat process in order to shed excess moisture after being harvested; the sweat process lasts approximately three to four weeks (until the potatoes cure sufficiently)
  • After the process is complete, skins will have a smooth, net-like appearance
