If you think potatoes don’t really have a distinct flavor, then it’s time you tried one of our exquisite heirloom varieties! They’re splendid when roasted, steamed, grilled, boiled or baked. Because of their compact flesh, these heirloom potatoes hold their shape during cooking, which makes them extremely versatile — and they cook in less than 25 minutes. Earthbound Farm offers 3 organic heirloom fingerling cultivars, each with a distinctive flavor and appearance:
French Fingerlings are slender, smooth potatoes with rounded ends and rose-colored skins; their flesh has a light marbling of pink and ivory. They’re known for their succulent texture and exceptional, buttery flavor.
Despite their colorful name, Russian Bananas are a straight or slightly curved finger-sized tuber with pale yellow skin and flesh. Their rich, nutty flavor and firm texture make them a favorite with chefs.
Ruby Crescents are slender and slightly elongated, with pale rose-hued skin. Their yellow flesh is moist with a mild, earthy taste. When cooked, these potatoes have a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture.
All these heirloom potatoes have very thin skins, so no peeling is required. They’re also small (usually 2 to 3 inches in length) and flavorful, with smooth, firm flesh and a moist, waxy texture.
