Planting & Care

  • 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!

Fantastic!

Remains firm after boiling. Wonderful in potato salad or as country fries. Very tasty. Prolific producer. Will never be without the Princess La Ratte!
