Yukon Gem- Early-mid season yellow-skinned, yellow-fleshed potato, which is quite possibly a great improvement to the Yukon Gold. Incredible yield, resistant to scab, late blight and growth cracks. Smooth yellow skin, very attractive.
Yukon Gold *Heirloom- early season yellow-skinned, yellow-fleshed potato. Great flavor, excellent storage, very well-known yellow potato, but susceptible to disease and hollow-heart.
Satina-Early-mid season yellow-skinned, yellow-fleshed potato. High yield, resistance to rhizoctonia, black leg, scab, and hollow-heart. Field resistance to late blight and very good storage.
Augusta- Mid-season yellow-skin, yellow-fleshed potato. Creamiest potato next to fingerlings. Very pretty yellow skin with gorgeous pink-blushed eyes.
(NC)Keuka Gold- Mid-season yellow-skin, yellow-fleshed potato. High-uniform yields, resistant to scab and golden nematode, tastes very similar to Yukon gold.
