A beautiful pastel pink skin and almost white interior. Creamy texture when roasted. Not as potatoey tasting as some, but still a good potato.

(1962) (SS) Well known early main crop with pink skin yellow flesh and a distinctive flavor. Resistant to drought and keeps well but can be susceptible to scab (avoid sandy or gravel soils).
