This was my primary planting for potatoes, I ordered 3 lbs.
From the company’s website:
Butte has a very light tan brown russet skin and produces very high yields. It has up to 20% more protein than any other potato. Good as a general purpose potato including mashed potatoes and great as a baked potato. Shows resistance to late blight and common scab.

Remember to water moderately.
