I always buy russet potatoes from Idaho at my local grocery store, but how do I which variety I am purchasing?
Idaho is the ONLY state that REQUIRES variety labeling on all our potatoes. It’s the law in Idaho! If you don’t see a label, most likely you are buying another state’s potatoes.
Look on the kwiklok (bag closure) once you locate Idaho Potatoes. Most likely you will see either the variety “Norkotah” or “Burbank”. And to find where to purchase Idaho Potatoes, follow this link: https://idahopotato.com/where-to-buy-idaho-potatoes

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
