Of all russet varieties, this one is a definite favourite. Grown widely throughout Britain since the 1870's, it has an excellent sweet, nutty flavour with a firm texture. It keeps well under refrigeration up to 3 months, and is delicious fresh or used in cooking. Resistant to scab and produces good, regular crops.
