Melissa’s Organic Russet Potatoes are fairly large and oblong shaped. These potatoes are best when baked, fried, mashed, or used in casseroles. They are organically grown without harmful pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.
Melissa's Organic label reads: "Melissa's Certified Organic Produce is free of artificial or synthetic fertilizers and full of unforgettable, great tasting flavor. Our farmers use traditional earth-friendly farming methods inspected by a nationally recognized agency to verify organic authenticity. Melissa's Organic Produce, a choice made closer to nature." Organic Russet Potatoes are preferred for reasons of taste, health and the environment.
To preserve the nutrients in these wonderfully healthy treats, leave the skins on and simply scrub gently in water before using.
Organic Russet Potatoes from Melissa’s are hand-selected for excellent quality. Look for firm, well shaped and fairly smooth potatoes. Avoid potatoes that have wrinkles or any bitter green discolorations. Also avoid potatoes that show signs of sprouting, wilting, or decay. Store in a cool, well-ventilated area rather than refrigerate. Organic produce should not be stacked with non-organic produce.
