Maincrop, late. Very characteristic, low-yielding waxy potato, knobbly shape, flesh white. Good boiled whole, good fried in olive oil; unsuitable for baking (too small in any case); unsuitable for mashing (impossible to peel). Yield 2.5 - 3 lb in a 3 gallon container. However, in bad blight years, yield is zero. In pots, not worth planting after about July 14; grows too slowly. It's possible to have enormous plants with no tubers underneath - the tubers form very late in the plant's life.
