I ordered 20 lbs each of the Red Norland and the Carola seed last year. We planted them in four 4x16 foot raised beds that had just been filled with mushroom compost. The Norlands took off and grew faster than the Carolas. They also produced a 20% larger yield (at least). The individual potatoes were much larger on average than the Carolas, too. I canned a lot of them and the canned potatoes were excellent for frying but turned to mush when used for anything else. The Reds didn't keep as long as the Carolas. They started sprouting in late December but the Carolas still look good and I'm still putting them up in the freezer, dehydrating them and getting them canned. But these Norland Reds were absolutely beautiful and delicious and better than any I've ever seen in the farmers markets around here.
