  • Mr Little’s Yetholm Gypsy is a distinctive and unique heritage potato with a wonderful name which summarises its historical connection to its original community. It has a unique colour with an eye­catching distinctive red, white and blue patterned skin, and has a versatile flesh good for boiling, steaming and roasting.

    The potato is held in SASA’s collection due to it’s importance and can be seen celebrated in specialist potato shows and festivals in the UK and internationally. It comes from the Borders town of Yetholm and was thought to be introduced to the town in 1899 and it has been found to be a variant of the King Edward potato. The skin colour can fade on cooking and the potato has a cream flesh.

    A seasonal product sometimes available from Skea Organics
