This variety was named after Lady Eve Balfour – a pioneer of the UK organic movement. It has a uniform oval shape, creamy skin and pale tasty flesh. It performs well as mash, boiled or wedges.
Vivaldi is a pale yellow potato with a velvety texture, this makes it great for mashing and is particularly good as a boiled potato, holding its shape. It has a mild sweet flavour and complements Mediterranean recipes and fish or chicken recipes.
Desiree potatoes have a firm, creamy tasting flesh making them ideal for smooth mash or being cooked in a sauce, such as our favourite Potato Dauphinoise/Dauphinoise Potatoes. Desiree are available across the major retailers and are easily recognisable by their lovely red skin and light yellow flesh. Desiree are normally larger, longer and oval shape.
