At least I think that's right.
I selected a hodgepodge of early, mid, and late cultivars (all images courtesy of www.potatogarden.com):
|Red Thumb Fingerling: early season, uniform shape|
|Purple Viking: early season, excellent mashed or|
baked, drought-resistant, becomes sweeter in storage
|Desiree: mid season, very disease-resistant, prolific|
yields, excellent all-around cooking potato, easy to grow
|Katahdin: long season, heirloom from 1932, drought-|
resistant, high yields, excellent mashed or baked, stores
well, top flavor
|Rio Grande Russet: long season, uniform shape, excellent|
all-around cooking potato, high yields, resistant to
|Ranger: long season, high yields, excellent baked or|
French-fried, very disease resistant
I was very tempted to order potatoes based soley on color but resisted this urge and instead focused on varieties that are disease-resistant and/or taste the best. I still had to order a purple-skinned and a pink-fleshed variety, though. Who doesn't want purple and pink potatoes??
I'm planning to grow my potatoes unconventionally in welded-wire towers as well as in traditional hills. I've read various accounts about the tower method, some of which reported lower than normal yields, but I'm going to try it anyway because the tidy nature appeals to me. Go figure. The hills will be my backup because I cannot live without potatoes.
