Kestrel is a Jack Dunnett variety, brought out in 1992. It's popular with
gardeners because it has some slug resistance and is good for showing.
The flavour is good, too, though the unusual colouring (basically
white, but with bluish-purple eyes) made the supermarkets think twice
about promoting it. Blight resistance (foliage) about 4; second early.
It now seems to be gaining in popularity; I've seen it in M & S.
