The oldest Arran variety still available, first introduced around 1918.
Moderate yields of bluish/purple tubers with brilliant white flesh.
Very tasty but also very floury. They need to be simmered very gently and NOT boiled vigorously. They have a fine texture which makes for the most wonderful white mash which will crisp beautifully if used as a shepherd pie or roast. They make particularly good roast potatoes, and they will also fry, bake, steam and microwave.
