‘French Fingerling’ is a fresh potato variety that is commonly grown for the specialty potato market. Formerly known as ‘Roseval’. The cultivar was selected from a progeny of a cross between ‘Vale’ and ‘Rosa’. It was released in 1950 by SICA Bretagne Plants, a member of the National Federation of Producers of Potato Plants in France. ‘French Fingerling’ demonstrated adaptability to Florida growing conditions by producing high yield and good tuber characteristics. Tuber production and quality results provided in this spotlight are from the Florida Potato Variety Trials conducted at UF/ IFAS Hastings Agricultural Extension Center between 2010 and 2018.
