At a recent talk on climate change and adaptation, Richard Hebda, former curator of Earth History and Botany at the Royal BC Museum, gave out heritage potatoes for audience members to plant in their gardens. The two varieties distributed were Ozette (known as a highly prolific and resilient variety of heritage potato) and Likely.

While not one of the recipients at this seminar I have grown this variety in the past. I have not been able to find it again and that is truly sad as it became my favorite potato for may reasons. Flavor, color, texture and a truly unique look. If you know of a source for seed potatoes in this or similar heirloom type fingerlings, I would greatly appreciate a contection.
Hi George, Are you referring to the ozette potato? Where are you located?
Hello, Yes the “Ozetta” potatoe.
I’m in Westmorland N.Y. 13490
Hi, Dr. Hebda said that he has seen that potato available for the US over the internet, sometimes called Makah. good luck in your search.
Thank you for your response and reaching out to find information for me.
A small group of like minded people are planting and harvesting Ozette Potatoes from Dr. Richard Hebda’s seed spuds. I have a great crop underway this year…..Dan Bowen/
