A 'Second Early' potato (Solanum tuberosum) variety, originally grown in the Shetland Islands, and now relegated to a heritage variety, as the larger growers and supermarkets scorn them because they can be tender to grow, and are of modest size.
If spotted, they are worth buying (or indeed growing at home) as they have excellent flavour.
Their floury texture makes them ideal for steaming, roasting or making chips.
