red and yellow skin, yellow fleshDon’t call Pinto a pony—this potato is a real workhorse. With striking bicolor skins, they practically sell themselves at market. High yields with up to 28 tubers per plant!
Buttery and decadent with a creamy texture. You’ll think an Easter Bunny left you a sweet pile of yellow-spotted pink eggs when you harvest!
In our trials Pinto shows resistance to blight, drought and scab; the leafhopper didn’t bother it a bit. Bred by the University of Maine.

Solanum tuberosum Fingerlings are long and thin, shaped like small fish or maybe even fingers, displaying various skin and flesh colors. Fingerlings are often prolific and disease-resistant. Though mostly late maturing, the plants set heavily and small ones can be harvested early. Chefs, market farmers and home gardeners find these beautiful potatoes have unequaled culinary qualities and flavor.
