It is said that this fingerling arrived in this country during the 1800's in a horse's feedbag. We're sure glad it did.
Growing Guide: Heavy yielding, tall spreading plants with high resistance to scabs and some resistance to leaf hopper. French Fingerlings are larger than average fingerlings, so pick on the early side for a leaner shape and to avoid growth cracks.
Nutty flavor and creamy smooth texture.
"Naturally Grown" Seed Potatoes are Certified Seed Potatoes grown without use of chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, or synthetic-based fertilizers. Like our Certified Organic Seed potatoes, they are grown using natural and organic methods such as beneficial insects, crop rotation, cover crops, animal grazing, and increased plant diversity on the farm. The only factor prohibiting Organic Certification is the application of a foliar acid to desiccate the vines before harvest. The use of the desiccant (synthetic) dramatically helps reduce spread of aphid-carried disease in a crop, which can easily ruin an entire crop of seed potatoes as disease tolerance levels for Certification are extremely low.

We are proud to offer this high-quality seed to you knowing it was grown with care in the spirit of organic.

Please note: Certified Organic Growers should secure approval from their Certifier before planting to ensure compliance. When Certified OG seed stock for specifically desired varieties is not available from other sources, planting untreated or conventional is often approved as an acceptable substitute.
