About the Pompadour Label Rouge potato
The Pompadour Label Rouge potato is one of the best varieties with firm flesh. Difficult to produce, it almost disappeared! It naturally has a delicious taste of 'fresh butter', its skin is thin and it holds on perfectly when cooked.
Cultivated by only 5 farmers in Picardy, it is harvested in September, it can be found until May of each year at early-market producers, in markets and in medium and large surfaces at a price of around € 2.50 / kg.
It is one of the few potatoes to have the Label Rouge from the Ministry of Agriculture, which attests to its taste quality and its rigorous production specifications.
