|Purple Peruvian, French Fingerling, |
Ruby Crescent, Russian Banana
Today I added an assortment of fingerling type potatoes to my collection of tubers to grow next summer. I am so happy to have a growing assortment of tubers and TPS seeds.
I grew some of these last year. They are mixed up with the exotic potatoes I have. So I bought more to keep them separated this year.

French fingerlings 80+ days, mid-season

Tubers are larger and more oval in shape than Russian Banana,
