Adirondack Red


Adirondack Red

red skin, pinkish flesh These rubies will have your cast iron glistening. Intense bright skin, moist firm flesh that’s rich in antioxidants, refuting those who knock potatoes’ nutritive qualities. Positive feedback from Stonecipher Farm was flattering but, alas, unprintable.

Released by Cornell in 2008 to restore vigor to the red fresh potato scene and qualified as “heirlooms-to-be” by Gourmet. Resists skinning, scab, hollow heart, internal defects and growth cracks.

The word “Adirondack” is thought to come from the Mohawk word ‘ha-de-ron-dah’ meaning ‘eaters of trees.’ French missionary Joseph-François Lafitau recorded that the word was used by the Iroquois as a derogatory term for groups of Algonquins who did not practice agriculture and therefore sometimes ate tree bark to survive harsh winters. Indigenous Royalties.
