We asked local potato supplier Phil Bakker to share some of his favourite Earth Apple varieties:
This potato has such a bright appearance and a beautiful smooth skin. Its elongated shape is highly attractive and it tends to stay medium to small in size which is something I really like about this variety. It is early maturing and has a fantastic taste and texture. It is gaining a lot of popularity in Europe right now for its convenience factor and superb taste - comparable to fingerling potatoes but better tasting in my opinion. Here is fun website with some more info. www.jazzypotato.co.uk
I really like this variety because it is like pulling a grape vine out of the ground in the fall. This variety can produce a ton of baby potatoes and stays small. It has been brought into the market as a baby potato variety because of is extremely high-set. This makes it excellent for container or raised bed planters. It is also an easy variety to grow and has good resistance to scab. And of course it has a great taste!
This variety always puts a smile on my face when I dig it up out of the ground. It looks like smooth pink candy coming out of the ground. It is one of the nicest looking potatoes I have seen. This variety is also a high-set variety so it tends to stay small in size. This is the closest variety we have to a fingerling potato. Again this variety will work we'll in containers or raised garden beds. It of course will do well in gardens too! Rosemarie makes a unique potato salad with an excellent taste.
