We LOVED this potato! My husband said it's the best he's ever had. I grew one in a potato bag, and we're going to do more bags next year. The skins are really thin, and the "meat" is just luscious! You can't go wrong with this one!

I have grown this potato in my backyard garden here in the Kennebec Valley in Maine. I chose this potato out of many varieties of white potatoes because of the name. I grew up on the banks of the Kennebec River. It turned out to be a very nice white potato that grows well in my heavy soil.

A wonderful white potato. It's very prolific and generous. It does pretty well in our clay soil.

A favorite in New England, my Dad raised them every year, as did my Grandfather before him.
They did very well for me this year (2004) in Kentucky, very good yields, firm, moist potatoes. Highly recommend.

Kennebec has been the most popular midseason potato in both Virginia and Georgia over the past 30 years. Georgia at least middle and south is not prime potato growing country. Our feed and seeds only carry red potatoes (Pontiac) and white potatoes ( kennebec). Locals just ask for red or white potatoes. Kennebec yields well under a variety of conditions. It is a moderately elongated potato with sufficient size to bake, but is equally good in boiled or fried potato dishes. Since my major use of home grown potatoes is as "new" potatoes, I prefer an earlier variety, but one makes do with what is available.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Evergreen Park, Illinois
Royal Center, Indiana
West Bridgewater, Massachusetts
Salisbury, New Hampshire
Monroe, North Carolina
La Follette, Tennessee
North Freedom, Wisconsin
