Potato, Yellow Finn (10 lbs)
Grow the famously gourmet potato from Europe that has captured the hearts of culinarians for decades! This mid-season maturing, yellow-fleshed variety is said to have been brought to America from Finland in the 1950s. Legend has it that farmer Carl Gustav Riipinen smuggled some tubers into the lining of his coat and began growing them. Once folks got a taste of the creamy, waxy texture and buttery flavor, the Yellow Finn became a household name and favorite of spud lovers the world over. Growing this scab-resistant variety is a snap. Be aware that the tubers are most delicious when harvested smaller. Gardeners will want to note that this is a slightly lower-yielding variety. For a traditional take on the Yellow Finn, try making Finnish potato rieskas (flatbread)!
