Potato-Red Thumb (Organic)

Red Thumb is a wonderful little gem fingerling for children to handle or arthritic hands because the tubers are very small. The skin is red with novelty bright rose coloured flesh. Sweeter than the Russian Banana and the least starchy of the fingerlings. 

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 2022 depending on location to avoid freezing in transit.

Please Pay for the Heavy Goods Shipping as these roots will require a box.
