Potato-French Fingerling (Organic)

French Fingerling is an heirloom variety with red skin and pale yellow flesh with pink flecks. It is a large fingerling and matures late in the season. The flesh is firm and dense and of a waxy texture with a buttery and nutty flavour. Great for roasting or baking. Developed in France in the 1950's by the name of Roseval.

We plant all of our potatoes after the Strawberry Full Moon, usually around June 15th. At this time the soil has warmed up and the life cycle of the potato beetle has past. Your potatoes may rot if planted too early in cold wet soil and also, encourages the life cycle of the potato beetle.

Plant approx. 2 feet apart with compost and kelp in deep fertile soil. Kelp has over 60 trace minerals, is a natural growth hormone, pest deterrent and adds some frost tolerance. A little goes a long way. Check out our fertilizer and cover crop section.

Mulch your plants to maintain soil moisture, moderate soil temperature and smother weed seedlings.

Shipping starts in April depending on location to avoid freezing in transit.
