Maris Piper Fluffy Potato Variety

Shetland Black Fluffy Potato Variety

Shetland Black - 1923

Long and oval in shape, this heritage variety is deceptively named – the flesh is yellow, with a deep blue ring. Very sweet and buttery with a fluffy texture, they fry well and make creative sautéed potatoes, crisps and chips. It’s best to cook them with the skin on to keep the blue coloured ring.

Highland Burgundy Fluffy Potato Variety

Highland Burgundy - 1936

This heritage variety was originally used to add appropriate colour to a meal for the Duke of Burgundy at the Savoy in London. Highland Burgundy potatoes are a long oval shape with a bright burgundy skin, combined with a red flesh with a definite ring of white. Excellent for novelty roasties, crisps and chips, they are best cooked with their skins on to retain their colour.

Rooster Fluffy Potato Variety


Rooster potatoes are easily distinguishable by their russet red skin and shallow eyes are widely available. Roosters have a fluffy yellow flesh and a deep earthy flavour, which lends itself particularly well to roasting, baking/jacket potatoes and chipping.

Arran Victory Fluffy Potato Variety

Arran Victory -1918

Bred on the Isle of Arran and named in celebration of the ending of the War, this heritage potato variety has a vibrant blue skin, which changes to creamy yellow once cooked, and a snowy white flesh. They have a good earthy taste and make perfect chips and roast potatoes as they have a fluffy texture.

Violetta Fluffy Potato Variety


Violetta is a specialist heritage potato variety with an indigo blue skin and blue flesh. They have a delicate sweet flavour, a slightly fluffy flesh and work well in savoury dishes. To retain the colour, it’s best to keep the skin on.
