A 'floury' maincrop potato variety, raised by R.J. Mansholt in Holland in 1979. It has red-skinned tubers and creamy flesh. Romano's are a good all-round potato, but at their best when baked, shallow-fried, mashed, roasted or used to make chips - simply being boiled or 'holding-up' for salad use, is their weakness.
