Organic French Fingerling Certified seed potatoes – Grow your own!

The French Fingerling is one of the most popular varieties as it is not only attractive with its red skin and yellow flesh, but is also easy to grow and very productive.  French fingerling potatoes produce high yields and are known for being extremely versatile in dishes. They are also popular for growing in backyard gardens as they can be cultivated in large pots.

French fingerling potatoes are small to medium in size and are slender and cylindrical in shape with rounded ends, averaging 6-7 centimeters in length. The rose-colored skin is thin and smooth with some shallow eyes and brown spotting scattered across the surface. The flesh is firm, dense, slippery, and is a marbling of pink and ivory. French fingerling potatoes stay firm and waxy when cooked and offer a robust, earthy, nutty, and buttery flavor.

French fingerling potatoes are best suited for cooked applications such as roasting, baking, and steaming. Their thin skin is edible and need not be removed prior to eating. French fingerling potatoes are perfectly sized for roasting either whole or halved with complimentary fresh herbs and dry spices, and they hold their shape well when cooked which makes them an excellent casserole and salad potatoes. French fingerlings can also be browned in a skillet and then slow braised in broth to finish.

Potatoes can be planted in early to mid- May, as long as the ground can be worked and the soil is starting to warm. The potato tubers are tender to the cold in transport so seed potatoes are available for pick up at the farm in Mid-April onwards. You can purchase seed now to reserve your seed and we will contact you when they are available for pickup.
