These cute oblong fingerling potatoes originally came from the Baltic region of Northeastern Europe. Tender Russian Banana potatoes have thin skins with firm, buttercream colored delicious flesh. They range in size from 3 to 4 inches long, with dense flesh that cooks up solid, keeps its shape well and slices neatly.
These gourmet fingerlings have a rich, chestnut-y flavor and waxy texture perfect in potato salads. You'll love them slowly roasted with whole garlic cloves, steamed to serve hot and fragrant with butter and rosemary or parboiled to skewer for the barbecue. Russian Bananas are heavy producers, good keepers, widely adapted and drought tolerant.
