The climate and soil conditions in Prince Edward Island, located off the east coast of Canada, are excellent for growing potatoes. The Island's rich sandy soil, clean air and water, and its long cold winters that naturally cleanse the soil, provide the perfect environment for growing high quality potatoes.
In addition, experience and adaptation of the latest growing, storing and shipping techniques have given Prince Edward Island growers the ability to deliver excellent quality potatoes. Just as connoisseurs of fine wine say they can taste the soil in which the grapes are grown, the Prince Edward Island potato has a flavour that is unique because of the Island's rich red soil.
P.E.I. farmers have been producing potatoes for the world since 1790. Today, potatoes are P.E.I.'s primary cash crop. During the 2015 season, approximately 89,500 acres of potatoes were harvested, producing approximately 26,000,000 hundredweight (1 hundredweight (cwt.) = 100lbs.)
