Great Famine in Ireland)
Perhaps the most pretentious aspect of the place is that they seem to have put the growing notes through a laminator. It's a real garden centre, not a shopping destination. (Well, yeah, there is a small rack of greetings cards and few "gifts" but you could easily miss them)
- Ratte: A bit like the better known Pink Fir Apple. An ancient long variety with fine flavour. Even harder to find in food shops than Pink Fir Apple
- International Kidney: A variety that when grown on Jersey can legally be called Jersey Royal. A "first early"
- Duke of York: Fast, well flavoured new potato
What interesting varieties did I decide I didn't have space for this year?
- Edzel Blue
- Shetland Black
- Mayan Twilight or the other "Mayan" brothers.(Bred from Solanum phureja instead of the more usual Solanum tuberosum)
