Rose Finn is a rare and beautiful rosy-colored fingerling potato with moderately dry yellow flesh. Century Heirloom grown since the 1840s . Splendid baked or boiled. Steady watering will minimize second growth (knobbiness). Grows high in hill. Hill up soil extra well. Great taste. 105-135 days to maturity.

Love this variety but am disappointed that it sells out so quickly. I order early but am rarely able to get any :-(
Excellent disease and pest resistance

The Rose Finn ranked #1 and #2 for disease/pest resistance and germination rate out of the 15 Wood Prairie Farm varieties I planted this year. The Colorado Potato Beetle did not like this variety at all; we did not find a single CPB on any of the 35 hills we planted and only 1 hill failed to germinate. I am only giving this variety a 4 rating because the yields (pound per plant) were the lowest of the 3 fingerling varieties we planted. I believe this variety is very susceptible to the heat in Virginia. I will grow this variety again next season to confirm if it doesn't do well in the heat or if I can improve the yields with more composted manure and straw mulch to protect the plant from the heat.
