Shetland Black - Novelty Heritage Seed Potatoes - Pack of 10
Product ref: POT102
Shetland Black was added to the National Collection in 1923 but probably dates from Victorian times when there was a great deal of potato breeding using coloured varieties. The 2nd Early produces lots of small to medium sized long oval tubers. They have a netted, very dark blue skin with shallow eyes. The flesh is yellowish with a markedly blue vascular ring. They are very tasty and floury - real crofter fuel. The tubers are on the small side. They fry well and the strong blue patterns caused by the distribution of the vascular tissue in different slicing directions could easily be the basis for some creative sautaed potatoes, crisps, etc. These Seed potatoes are for planting in Spring, and are for delivery between February & May.
