Unsurpassed culinary quality. Heirloom gourmet variety first grown by early Russian settlers. Savory finger-sized yellow tubers are exquisite baked, boiled or in salads. Crescent shaped tapered ends.

What a delightful surprise these small tubers are! They grew beautifully and have produced abundantly. Thanks for the recommendation. All varieties of seed potatoes bought from Wood Prairie have performed better than those we bought from our local farm store.

Mom and I preferred these to the Swedish Fingerling. The banana has better flavor.

I ordered a barrel of your potatoes as a gift for relatives in Franklin, NH. They were thrilled and the potatoes arrived on the day you indicated they would. This made a great gift, just wanted to thank you for the great packaging and shipping of your product. I'm sure we will be ordering again, Thanks!
