This is the newest potato I am releasing next season - ‘Nellie’
I couldn’t think of a name for it so I did a naming competition on Linkedin and the lady I drew named it after herself.
This is the third that I have selected that has commercial potential for market gardeners - produces well, good sized tubers, easy to peel. Though the flesh colour makes it a bit of a novelty type. I already have a market gardener wanting to buy tubers in the winter so he can build up stock for himself.
I love the strong purple flesh that turns bright blue when cooked, and also has a great flavour. A winner in my books though really only appeals to people who love unusual coloured vegetables, lol.
Now that I have proved it over a couple of years I will apply to register it with OSSI this coming week.
