Planting, maturity and harvest times
Snow Finger is a fingerling variety producing high numbers of medium to large tubers per hill. Space whole seed potatoes approximately 25-30 cm (10″-12″) apart. Snow Finger is an early harvest variety that matures in about 75-85 days. When grown in containers it can mature faster. This variety is excellent for growing in all sizes of containers and also does well in gardens where it can grow larger tubers. Give adequate nutrients at planting time. Especially Nitrogen.
Snow Finger has moderately dry matter content. It is fairly firm cooking and has a soft delicate taste. Use similarly as you would with other fingerling varieties. Snow Finger is excellent tasting and is great for grilling, roasting, potato salads, pan-frying and boiling.
Approximately 5 months at 6 degrees Celsius. Snow Finger potatoes sometimes show soft tips called “sugar ends” which is when the sugars in the new potato have not completly turned into starch. Proper plant nutrition helps to mitigate this problem.
