Potatoes - New for boiling
From the end of April Jersey Royals (see photograph) are available, and after the first week quickly come down in price; however they seem to lose their flavour after the end of June. Nicola"s (see above) are also a kidney-shaped potato and when new are also excellent, so are Ulster Sceptre"s and the small salad-type potatoes such as Charlotte and Pink Fir Apple.
