Year round potatoes?

Vital Information | Apr 24, 2003 05:31 PM

This is mostly to Evil Ronnie, our chowhound in the biz, but perhaps someone else would know too.

One of the prime charms of the World's Greatest Hot Dog stand is the fresh made fries. Well, today the place was just jam packed at lunch. Sophia noticed the line made pretty much a complete circle around the place. So all the extra time got me thinking of things Gene and Judes.

And I was thinking how do they get big old russet potatos in April. Way too early for the crop but awfully late for those "cellared". I did notice the fries had a bit more of a waxy taste today, so maybe part of the thing is that they were not russet potatoes.

Anyone know what they do?
