Bintje

yellow skin, yellow flesh A Dutch schoolteacher in the early 20th century bred potato varieties that he mostly named after his students. Released in 1905, this variety bears the nickname of a little girl. The Dutch pronunciation is something like BIN-tchyeh, but Americans tend to BIN-jee.

The most widely grown yellow-fleshed potato in the world because of its storability, proficient growth habits and adaptability to a wide range of soil types. The potato of choice for pommes frites (french fries) in Belgium, where they dip them in mayonnaise instead of in ketchup. Large clusters of smooth golden-fleshed tubers will appear beneath these quickly germinating, vigorous plants. Exquisite flavor; the Dutch know a thing or two about breeding desirable potatoes.

Space at 16–18".
