Potatoes in smaller sized packaging increasingly popular

So far, the 2016 potato crop in the US looks to be similar to last year. “Plantings are down slightly compared to last year, but higher yields are expected to make for similar supplies,” says Scott McDulin- Vice President of Marketing/Retail Sales with Schmieding Produce. In August, Texas will start harvesting its Russet potatoes, but the majority of US potatoes will be harvested between late September and the end of October from Idaho, Colorado, Wisconsin and Washington. Specialty potatoes continue to outpace other varieties of US potato consumption. “This is the fastest growing segment and it is most profitable as well,” mentioned McDulin.
