UPDATE: IDAHO POTATOES

September 28, 2021

Ample supplies of large-size (40- to 70-count) Markon First Crop (MFC) Idaho Norkotah Potatoes are available; 90- through 100-count MFC Idaho Norkotah Potatoes are limited.

New Crop Norkotahs

  • Quality is good; occasional skinning, excess moisture, and cooler mold may be observed in fresh-run potatoes
  • U.S. No. 2 production remains limited, as potatoes that would normally meet No. 1 grade are being packed to meet demand for No. 2 grade orders; No. 2 supplies will increase once potatoes are shipped out of storage
  • Norkotahs will begin shipping out of storage in mid-October

New Crop Burbanks

  • New crop Burbank production will start next week
  • Limited supplies of fresh-run packer label potatoes are expected to become available for shipment the week of October 11
  • Once the harvest is complete, Burbank potatoes will be cellared in order to go through the sweat process, then will become available in early November
