Product information "Seed Potatoes 'Bamberger Hörnla'"

This old type of Franconian potato belongs to a group of potatoes in various regions and countries, that have summit-like, crescent-shaped, elongated tubers, a fine-nutty aroma, firm, with a waxy, creamy texture. Another example is the French variety La Ratte. With the cultivation of the more than 150 years old variety Bamberger Hörnla, this variety also cultivates the cultural history, the history of nutrition, in the potato gained a central meaning on the continent (maybe also earlier?), also in Western Europe in the 19th century. In keeping with industrialisation, the potato was also something like the first convenience food: easy to grow, quickly cooked and pleasant to eat and, above all, it was filling.
Enjoying the variety Bamberg Hörnla is a special pleasure because the aroma, the nutty flavour really convinces. And finally, it is this taste, which is the only and most important reason to not only preserve this variety today, but also to grow it in your own garden. We recommend growing this potato together with the modern variety Sarpo Kifli®, which has similar tuber characteristics, but still a longer storage time. And then you can judge the old and the modern varieties in parallel and see the potato progress – and yet enjoy the most important of both varieties: the fine, creamy flavour of firm-cooking varieties!

Here are the advantages of the potato variety Bamberger Hörnla:
• An intense nutty taste
• Firm-coooking, with a delicate, creamy texture
• Ideal with asparagus and as a potato salad, even alone with a little butter and spices
• A variety with history; experience the history of potatoes!
