King Harry Potato

Solanum tuberosum

If you have pests, grow this potato.

King Harry is a unique russet type potato that has made waves in the natural and organic growing arenas for its unusual pest-resistant characteristics. We have Cornell University to thank for this variety, derived from a wild-type species from Bolivia. King Harry's sticky leaf hairs naturally deter potato leafhoppers, aphids, flea beetles, and potato tuber moths. It also offers some resistance to the Colorado potato beetle. Sourced through Tucker Farms, a century-old family-owned and operated potato farm in Upstate New York. Potatoes ship from mid-April through early May, depending on your location. See below for more shipping details.

Potato tubers ship from mid-April through early May, depending on your location. If you purchase seeds and dahlia tubers at the same time anytime from January until the ship date for your region, you will receive two shipments—a prompt shipment of seeds and a later shipment of tubers—and the shipping fees shown at checkout will take this second delivery into account. This product does not ship internationally.
