Default Early potatoes for longer storage

I have been growing Red Norland with great success, however they start growing eyes somewhere into December cold basement storage.
Any other varieties preferably early to mid that are productive but will keep longer?
I have tried other regular varieties from Menards but they are not as productive as Red Norland.

Am looking at this website. Anyone grown Reddale or Caribe in midwest?

I probably will do Red Norland as my main one but would like to try other varieites which will give me a bit longevity in storage.

Well, I ordered Reddale and Caribe to join my Red Norland. I will update my findings in case if anyone will be looking for Il area potato varieties

I don't grow potatoes anymore, but always had good success with Red Pontiac, and they kept longer than Norland. You might try it sometime, if you haven't already.
