DUKE OF YORK and RED DUKE OF YORK:
A good old-fashioned variety with excellent flavour. It was bred about a century ago in Aberdeenshire. Tubers oval; some almost egg-shaped. Medium-floury variety with yellowish flesh; very good flavour. Some susceptibility to blight but they mature early so they usually avoid it. Best boiled but will disintegrate if over-cooked; care is needed.
