Default New to potato gardening - Need some help.

I would like some information regarding what potato does best for south Florida? I grow in 20 gallon containers. I've read that Sebago and Yukon Gold do best. Can you advise where I can get seed potatoes at this time?? Please advise. Thanks as always!

You can try this site, the page hasn't been updated sine June but they may still have some. I would call them before ordering.

You can get the Yukon Gold at the store put them in a dark place and by the time you are ready to plant here in a couple of months or so they will have put out sprouts.
When you are ready to plant and you have eyes on the potatoes cut at least one eye per cutting and let them cure in the open air for 24 to 48 hours and plant.

Happy Fermenting.
