Description

PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING

Seed potatoes cannot be allowed to freeze. Once frozen, the potatoes will be unviable for sprouting.

Potato orders placed from anywhere in the US by October 31 will ship as soon as they arrive (see ETA above). Orders can’t be cancelled once they’ve shipped.

From Nov 1st until Mid/Late Spring, we will ONLY ship potatoes to CA, OR, WA, NV and AZ. If you live outside of these 5 Western states, we cannot ship potatoes to you as they will otherwise invariably freeze during transit. While your specific state might be having decent weather, your order will travel through very cold regions from our CA location to yours. While you certainly can place your order, we will only ship it when the threat of freeze across the nation is over, which typically is in April or May.


Said to have arrived in this country during the 1800's in a horse's feedbag; this fingerling is gourmet quality with satin red skin. On the inside, you'll find a yellow flesh with an interior ring of red, when cut across. Produces good quality, medium-sized tubers which are a great addition to any plate.

  • 80+ days, mid-season
  • Satin red skin with yellow flesh
  • Great baked or any way you like it
  • Certified seed & certified organic
Planting Instructions:
  • Fall-planted spuds produce outstanding yields by May. If your area experiences hard winters (USDA Zones 1–7), or you tend to have long, wet spring seasons when rot might be a problem, plant potatoes in the spring.
  • One pound of seed potatoes will plant a row approximately 8' long with seed pieces spaced at 8 - 12" apart.
  • Plan on 1,200 lb/acre (600 lb of fingerlings) when rows are spaced 36" apart with 12" between plants.
  • Under optimal conditions, you can expect to harvest 10–15 pounds of potatoes for every pound of seed potato planted.

Features

Reviews

love these potatoes

We just pulled out our first French Fingerling Potatoes and were we surprised at how prolific they were! We planted them around St. Patrick's day, and have a nice harvest of new potatoes at the end of June. There were some LARGE potatoes on our plants, and they had such smooth red skins. They were beautiful even before we roasted them. Delicious!
