A rosa by any other name?
In Spanish rosa means pink. Ama can be derived from the verb amar "to love".
Growing Guide: Stress tolerant. Reliable and easy to grow. AmaRosa is rarely misshapen due to growth cracks or knobs.
Disease Resistance Characteristics: Resistant to scab and moderate resistant to late blight.
Shallow eyes make for easy peeling. Smooth skin and tasty creamy flesh both loaded with antioxidants. Retains bright red color when cooked. Great boiled and roasted. It works for chip-making as well and retains the red color for a spectacular crunch!
Please note: Certified Organic Growers should secure approval from their Certifier before planting to ensure compliance. When Certified OG seed stock for specifically desired varieties is not available from other sources, planting untreated or conventional is often approved as an acceptable substitute.
"Naturally Grown" Seed Potatoes are Certified Seed Potatoes grown without use of chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, or synthetic-based fertilizers. Like our Certified Organic Seed potatoes, they are grown using natural and organic methods such as beneficial insects, crop rotation, cover crops, animal grazing, and increased plant diversity on the farm. The only factor prohibiting Organic Certification is the application of a foliar acid to desiccate the vines before harvest. The use of the desiccant (synthetic) dramatically helps reduce spread of aphid-carried disease in a crop, which can easily ruin an entire crop of seed potatoes as disease tolerance levels for Certification are extremely low. We are proud to offer this high-quality seed to you knowing it was grown with care in the spirit of organic.
