Superb flavoured mashing potato originating in Scotland: I first came
across it in Ireland, where it's known as "Queens". It is very
susceptible to blight
but matures quite early so often avoids it. In any case it is fine in dry years. Bordeaux mixture treatment is needed
in damp years.
It flowers freely; the blooms are white with yellow
centres. The haulms are fairly light but vigorous.
