• Keeps well in storage.
• Early season (75-90 days)
Growing Guide: Above average yields. Avoid planting too close together because Red Thumbs like to have lots of space.
Disease Resistance Characteristics: Resistant to blight.
A new and rare fingerling with a fabulous taste, smooth skin, and shallow eyes. Red Thumb is a smart selection for sale to chefs at restaurants and the clientele at specialty markets. Best when roasted. Also excellent for potato salad.
"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.
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.
