Seed potatoes cannot be allowed to freeze therefore, special shipping is required during the Fall/Winter months. Seed potatoes will ship FedEx Ground To Zones 2-3 Only, Zones 4-8 Ships Via FedEx 3 Day. Orders from zones 4-8 will only ship on Monday and Tuesday (to ensure the potatoes do not sit at FedEx over the weekend). Orders can’t be cancelled after they’ve shipped.
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.
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.Review by Laughing clown (on 1/21/14)
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.Review by cathy (on 3/9/13)
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!Review by Rose (on 6/9/12)
Remains firm after boiling. Wonderful in potato salad or as country fries. Very tasty. Prolific producer. Will never be without the Princess La Ratte!Review by rural_gal (on 8/19/11)
