Heirloom Potato ‘Ozette’

Introduced to the Makah Tribe in Neah Bay back in 1791 by South American explorers, the Ozette fingerling potato has been a mainstay in Makah gardens ever since, celebrated for its delicious nutty, earthy flavor. This unique fingerling potato has been highlighted by SlowfoodUSA.org as a traditional food in need of preservation. We are happy to oblige by offering organic Ozette seed potatoes as part of our vast seed potato selection.

 

Truly an heirloom potato, Ozette has thin yellow skin and flakey, white creamy flesh. The many eyes on Ozette make her a prolific producer late in the growing season. Just imagine some of these cuties roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper, and herbs to go with a cozy autumn dinner.
