Grew this one a couple years ago. Did very well with a bit of neglect and poor conditions. Never really got to try them however *(will update this). The thing about this one is: it came back! Potatoes will do that if not allowed to freeze (I mulch them when growing) They came up last year amongst the onions, and is back this year too! So it's a survivor. I am replanting it in a potato area this time and will grow it properly this time and report back.

(1885) A classic french salad potato with much smoother skin than Pink Fir Apple. Tubers are yellow waxy and delicious whether eaten hot or cold.
