The Prairie Blush potato was developed by Jim Gerritsen of Wood Prairie Farm in Aroostook County, Maine in the early 2000s. Gerritsen first discovered the potato growing as a chance clonal variant on a hillside field of Yukon Gold potatoes.

Today, Prairie Blush potatoes can be found in home gardens, farmers markets, and some grocers in the United States.
