Irish potato, second only to Golden Wonder in dry matter content. Red skin but duller than Desiree. Haulms small. Good flavour; nearly as good as British Queen; excellent for steaming, boiling (do not over-cook) and frying. Yield about 2.5 - 3lb in a bottomless three gallon pot; they are great for container growing; I use them every year. The variety is relatively recent; I came across it first in Ireland in 1999, and apparently it was first made available in 1993. It has been used for making crisps.
