About the product

Red potatoes have smooth, thin skins and work well in casseroles, soups, salads or boiled, steamed and roasted. These potatoes come to us and you with the dirt still on.

Dirty? : Our farmer has found that not washing his potatoes helps to maintain longer storage life. The dirt protects against light damage, which causes potatoes to go soft and green. And remember, keep your potatoes in a cool, dry and dark spot. When your ready to eat them wash them up in a sink of warm water.
