Free Potato Seeds

The Seed Company by E.W. Gaze in St. John’s is offering free trials of exotic heirloom seed potato cultivars. The historic local business has partnered with P.E.I.-based Phytocultures Ltd. to bring in four unique cultivars of potatoes never before grown in the province: Yellow Sun, Red Smile, Kiss-me-a-lot, and Lobster Red. According to Phytocultures Ltd., these varieties are new to Canada, but are actually quite ancient, originating in antiquity and with possibly 1,000 or more years of production and taste selection behind them. While supplies last, customers are encouraged to take a free sample of one of the varieties and grow them to harvest. All the company asks in return is feedback on how well they grow and taste, to help determine whether they will be brought in as a new product to be sold alongside their regular seed potato selection next year.
