Tasty Spuds You Can Grow at Home

While potatoes are relatively cheap to buy at your local grocery store, growing your own potato garden will provide better tasting spuds and allow you to select a variety best for your needs. The following varieties are perfect for your home garden. Some have unique shapes and unique colors. Although each offers its own flavor that behaves differently when cooked, they’re all easy to grow at home. Such as the: 

  • Yukon Gold
  • Purple Peruvian 
  • Red Bliss
  • New potatoes 
  • Adirondack Blue potatoes 
  • Adirondack Red potatoes 
  • Fingerling
  • Carola 
  • Inca Gold 
  • Rose Gold
  • Purple Viking
  • Jewel Yam 
  • Japanese Sweet Potato 

Think about the flavors and dishes you and your family enjoy the most. Then, ensure you have a sunny location to start growing potatoes and find a grow method that’s right for you. Raised garden beds may help you yield the most significant crop, for example, while grow bags are often easier for beginners to learn how to grow potatoes.

Your needs and preferences will help narrow down which variety is right for you.
