PVP stands for the Plant Variety Protection Act; the variety is patented. Instituted in 1970, the PVPA allows exclusive commercial selling rights to the recipient of the protection. These intellectual property rights are qualified by four characteristics: the variety’s newness, distinctiveness, uniformity, and genetic stability. Recipients of the protection can allow select growers to reproduce stock and sell it commercially if they choose. The use of PVP in Fedco’s catalog is for informational purposes only and in no way constitutes an endorsement of seed patenting.

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.
