Grenaille: one size, several varieties


Grenaille qualifies tender-fleshed potatoes less than 40 mm in size. They can be of different varieties: Elongated ratte, Red-skinned sweetheart, Charlotte, Anoé, Princess Amandine® ... Their small size makes them quick to prepare and very aesthetic. Do like the great chefs, put them on the plate!

The culture of Grenailles is demanding: to obtain a sufficient yield, you need a lot of large plants giving many tubers. The most delicate step is top dressing, which involves removing the leaves from the plants. This action stops the growth of potatoes and produces tubers of the desired size.

Grenailles are very easy to prepare: the delicacy of their skin allows them to be eaten without peeling them and their small size means that they cook quickly. It only takes a few minutes to prepare them! To enjoy sautéed or hash browns, steamed or in the oven ...
