Our goal is to Create a catalog of all potato varieties grown locally (except for commercial) and highlight the features of each variety and their best use in the kitchen.
Feeding the nation is a high priority career that begins in your own backyard or even small patio. Tubers are planted to obtain an exact genetic duplicate of a given variety. Tubers also produce flowers and fruit, a berry that contains seeds. Each seed is a unique genetic variety from the mother plant and the pollen from either the mother plant or another flowering potato tuber. Through controlled pollination, breeders can achieve potato varieties that are more resistant to blight, intense heat, certain insects, have more antioxidants, higher protein values, and less sugars. By open pollination of Bumblebees, other insects and the wind, Mother Nature produces an unending variety to choose from. The continued success of our food production relies on a wide selection of available varieties to interbreed and research. Members of the Kenosha Potato Project help ensure that noncommercial potato varieties not only exist, but thrive all over the world. Curzio is proud to be able to exchange/sell both potato tubers and TPS (true potato seed) listed through Seed Savers Exchange.
