Roughly how many russet potatoes make up 26 pounds?

Hi my recipe called for  26 pounds of potatoes and I don’t have a scale to check:(

    You can't really cook without a set of scales.

    No one is going to be able to even give a rough estimate.

    Maybe 52 average sized ones [ enough to fill your hands [one in each hand ].

    Holy crap. Each potato is about 6 ounces. So like 69 potatoes??? Are you sure it says 26 pounds and not 26 OUNCES?

    Yes I would check at the grocery store.

    Go to a grocery store and buy three ten-pound bags of russet potatoes.  That'll be thirty pounds.  Count the potatoes and figure out the average weight of each potato.  Then put away four pounds' worth and use the rest.

    depends on the potatoes' sizes
