French Heirloom Potatoes
Inventory, lb : 0
The French fingerling is sleek and slender with a classic potato shape, cylindrical with rounded ends. Its size is slightly larger than other fingerling types but much smaller than conventional potatoes measuring on average between 2 and 3 inches in length. Its rose-colored skin is thin and smooth with some shallow eyes and spotting. Its flesh, a marbling of pink and ivory, stays firm and waxy even when cooked. French fingerlings offer a robust, earthy and buttery flavor, and the entire potato, skin and all is edible. In fact, the flavor of the French fingerling is said to be at its best when they are prepared and served skin on.
Available year-round with some slight gapping.
The French fingerling potato, botanically a part of Solanum tuberosum, is a fingerling type potato. Fingerlings are a group of potatoes that are considered a type rather than specific variety and are known for their naturally petite size. Also known as Roseval and Nosebag the French fingerling is a popular fingerling potato type both in its place of origin, France as well as in the United States. In the United States, it is considered a specialty potato and as such has a slightly more expensive price point than conventional baking potatoes.
Considered one of the best for flavor, these attractive potatoes especially love to be buttered up! And a spritz of white wine on hot cooked potatoes takes taste buds to potato heaven. Ideal salad potato.
Potatoes are a New World crop, native to the high Andes.
