Solanum tuberosum 'Banana' (Fingerling)


Solanum tuberosum 'Banana' is a versatile gourmet fingerling potato with yellow flesh.

Solanum tuberosum 'Banana' is a gourmet, late season, heirloom fingerling potato. These tubers are smaller than other varieties, oblong with a crescent or banana shape with smooth and waxy yellow skin. The yellow flesh is firm, buttery, moist and tender when cooked.
