Favorite of Fine Chefs


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.

Discovered in the Swiss Alps by French Farmer Jean Pierre Clot, the La Ratte fingerling has a rich and chest-nutty flavor and has long been favored by fine chefs. Wonderfully smooth and creamy when pureed yet maintains a firm texture when cooked. Mid to late season variety.

  • 100+ days, late-season
  • Long uniform tubers with a nutty flavor
  • 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.

Beautiful seed potatoes

Just recieved several varieties of seed potatoes from Peaceful Valley, including these, and they are beautiful and carefully packed. Can't wait to plant them. What a great product for an absolutely awesome price. thank you. The bag of mixed fingerlings were just as nice.

fantastic potatoes

We grew these potatoes last year, and they were fantastic! They were prolific producers, even though we didn't give them the care we should have. The potatoes keep for a long time when stored properly. They stay buttery and firm but creamy in soups.

Love these fingerlings

I planted La Ratte Fingerlings in October 2012 and enjoyed eating these in May. I got worried when I didn't see them sprouting in Jan/Feb. But Peaceful Valley assured me that they would sprout when the weather warmed up. And did they ever! The potatoes grew very well and had a nutty like flavor. They were great for making fried potatoes. I'll be ordering these again in October. Loved them!
