  • This unique looking variety of the potato has a sweet taste, floury texture and a visual striking look that is distinctive red. Highland Burgundy Red is only available in a few farm shops across the country and purchased and appreciated by the few people who still know this variety. Highland Burgundy is grown in only one or two farms and its seeds are kept at the largest potato seedbank in Europe.

    Oval, long shape, dull russet layer over bright burgundy skin. Red flesh with a definite ring of white, a fluffy texture and delicious sweet flavour. Incredible pink mash, crisps and chips, as it retains its colour well, particularly if steamed rather than boiled.

    Please note: Seasonal availability from SKEA Organics, The Potato House
