La Ratte potatoes are small to medium in size and are oblong, ovate, and have a slight curve with an irregular bumpy shape. The smooth, golden skin has a few shallow eyes and is speckled faintly with tan and dark brown spotting. The flesh is firm, waxy, dense, and golden yellow. When cooked, La Ratte potatoes are soft and tender and offer buttery flavors with pronounced nutty undertones of hazelnut.
La Ratte potatoes are an excellent source of potassium, vitamin C, starch, and fibre.
