LaRatte
LaRatte yellow-netted skin, yellow flesh Plumper than most fingerlings, these rodent-shaped tubers have a name that translates as ‘little mouse.’ This little pet is versatile in the kitchen and the most consistent fingerling in shape and size. You’ll welcome these mice into your packing shed for their ease of sale and “perfect texture,” says Heron Breen. Kept cold through the winter, LaRatte stores beautifully and maintains its fluffy flesh to warm you through the winter. Organic seed only.

This item will ship on our regular shipping schedule, starting in early April with the warmest hardiness zones. We cannot ship this item any earlier; we regret that we cannot honor any requests to do so.

Fingerlings are long and thin, shaped like small fish or maybe even fingers, displaying various skin and flesh colors. Fingerlings are often prolific and disease-resistant. Though late maturing, the plants set heavily and small ones can be harvested early. Chefs, market farmers and home gardeners find these beautiful potatoes have unequaled flavor and culinary qualities.

LBR indicates field resistance to late blight.
