1895 - Early Maincrop. Skin is pink/red
with white flesh that is very floury and full of
flavour. Tubers are round and very long keeping.
This old variety has been much used in the breeding
of modern Arran varieties. My experiences: large but slender
haulms rather like those of British Queen; no flowers, not
much trouble with blight, a bit like "Up-To-Date"; very good
flavour. Yield in pots low - about 1lb.
