typically 1.25 lbs per 2 gallon container, but lower in blight years. Pale
yellow skins and off-white flesh; very waxy. Excellent when new for
boiling. No good for mashing or baking; OK for frying in oil when
young. On storage the skins gradually become tougher and the flesh
less pleasant; by late April, large stored tubers may start to go woody.
Flowers are the usual potato-flower colour: white with yellow centres; they flower freely but don't set seed. The plants have heavy haulms; they are fairly susceptible to blight (5).
