Bintje

yellow skin, yellow flesh Or Miss Bintje, named after a pupil of the Dutch schoolteacher who released this variety in 1905. (Dutch pronunciation is something like BIN-tchyeh, but it’s been Americanized to BEN-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". Susceptible to scab.
