Bio-Region of Origin: Unknown
Quantity: 900 grams

Description: An early short season cultivar similar to Pink Fir, but with a yellow skin. Outstanding long smooth skinned buttery potatoes, make excellent potato salad, came here with our Irish ancestors! A yellow waxy finger type, that produces all it’s potatoes right beside the stem in one pile.

Seems to be the same as La Ratte, a traditional French potato that has been in NZ for a long time. Also from the Henry Harrington collection where it was called Lady Finger.
