Gardeners' Notes:

According to Wood Prairie Farm, Carola is a yellow potato from Germany, with smooth creamy meat and great flavor. It's best baked or fried.

One source states that 'Carola' produces large yields of medium-sized, rounded oval potatoes with straw- beige skin. Excellent when harvested as young new potatoes. Creamy yellow flesh, relatively low starch. Great for soups, boiling or fried. Maintains new potato qualities for months in root cellar. 95 days.

Plants grew like mad despite an onslaught of potato beetles (par for the course around here) and flea beetles. Yield was high, rotting/scab almost nonexistent, and the taters were lovely: firm, golden-fleshed, creamy-tasting. New potatoes or end-of-season potatoes, they were all fantastic. Will grow again!
