Seed supplies for the new Non-GMO ‘Caribou Russet’ – named after the nearby potato town in Aroostook County – will continue to be tight in the potato industry for the next couple of years as seed growers multiply up supplies.
We grew a good supply of Organic Maine Certified Seed Caribou Russet this year (http://www.woodprairie.com/…/certified-organic-seed-potatoes) and have been shipping them steadily to customers since September. We know we’ll sell out, it’s just a matter of when.
Caribou Russet’s new found fame is detailed in this article (http://fiddleheadfocus.com/…/caribou-russet-is-now-a-main…/…). Jim
“The Caribou Russet hit store shelves with limited supply in 2016. A year later, Hannaford stores began stocking the new variety in produce sections throughout Maine. This year, more Hannaford stores will carry the Caribou Russet, as well as Stop and Shop stores, making it widely available throughout New England.”
