MERLOT

Merlot

A red flesh and red skinned variety offered by potatogarden.com years ago (ex-Ronniger), a cross of FRENCH FINGERLING x RED GOLD by Verlin Rockey. We have received donated by Joseph-lee Morehouse. My very initial 2016 harvest report looks terrible. Most containers harvested have been at or below half of usual. This one came in at 38oz .. The highest so far – so perhaps not bad!

The red flesh fades a little after cooking. The texture is very flaky and the flavor mediocre too poor. It features a medium thin skin.
It would NOT be a keeper, except for the higher antioxidants levels and the decent yield.
Probably best tasting pan fried than boiled!
