Amandine potatoes

The 'Amandine' potato is a cultivar of early potato, descended from the varieties 'Charlotte' and 'Mariana'. First bred in Brittany, France, in the early 1990s, it entered the French national list of potato varieties in 1994. 'Amandine' typically produces long tubers with very pale, unblemished skin. Their flesh, firm and also very pale, contains comparatively little starch. Amandine potatoes have become popular in Switzerland.
