Gardeners' Notes:

Positive curzio On Oct 19, 2008, curzio from Kenosha, WI wrote:

Very long fingerling type tubers - up to 5 - 6" long - with yellow skin and yellow flesh, also known as Kipfel and Kiflis. Has tendency to grow in crescent moon shape, but name originates from bakery lingo, as Kipfel is German for croissant. More information can be found by googling Kenosha Potato Project.
