A fine-flavoured potato from (I think) France. I'm not able to find out much about them - not in my usual reference books./ They were bought from Thompson & Morgan. The flavour (slightly nutty) and texture are unusually good; the blight resistance is fair (I'd estimate around 5) and although they are attacked by slugs, they don't tend to rot, unlike many moister and softer potatoes. They mash and steam very well, but are not as floury as, say, Edzell Blue, so hold together slightly better when cooked.
