The Ozette potato was introduced by the Spanish Explorers in the 1700s to the NW Coastal Indian Tribes. The original seed was obtained from Anna Cheeka, Maka Indian of the Neah Bay Tribe where it is still grown today. The Ozette is one of the tastiest of all fingerlings. Classic in appearance with pale gold skin and creamy yellow flesh. The slightly nutty, earthy flavor comes through beautifully when lightly steamed or sautéed.
