Product Description

GemStar is a high yielding, medium sized potato with white flesh and lovely brown skin.It is excellent for baking and frying. The fries produce a very nice golden colour. They are resistant to common scab and potato virus.
Plant  after danger of frost. To avoid diseases, plant where potatoes or related plants (tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants) have not grown for at least a year. Set the seed pieces in 4- to 6-inch-deep planting holes or trenches. Space seed pieces about 12 inches apart in rows 3 feet apart.
Potatoes need a loose, deep, sandy, or sandy loam soil, or soils generously amended with organic matter such as compost. All potatoes need regular irrigation or rainfall throughout the season.  Once the plants have emerged from the ground, hill soil up, covering all but one-third of the sprout. Repeat hilling three to four weeks later. Mulch the rows with a 4- to 6-inch-thick layer of straw mulch when plants emerge to help conserve moisture and stop weed seeds from germinating. 1lb
