This treasured heirloom, a particular favorite of restaurant chefs, has attractive rosy-beige skin and deep yellow flesh. The elongated tubers are shaped like big fat stubby fingers, sized from 3 to 4 inches long. Rose Fir’s flesh looks already buttered, and the flavor is sweet and quite nutty, with a dense texture.
These prized fingerlings cook quickly when steamed, boiled or roasted. Enjoy simply prepared as their superb flavor stands on its own. Rose Fir tubers often set near the surface, so hill plants up well and you’ll be rewarded with an abundance.
