Highland Burgundy Red
£3.00 – £12.50
Unfortunately we’ve now sold out of this variety. We are growing more this year which will be available after harvest in autumn 2019. For a similar alternative for the time being please have a look at our Red Emmalie potatoes.
A Scottish variety dating back to the 1930s that was named after being served to the Duke of Burgundy in the Savoy in London to add some colour to his meal. They are long and ovular in shape with a bright red skin surrounding a floury red flesh with a distinct ring of white around the edge, just under the skin. With a fluffy texture they make colourful roast potatoes and interesting pink mash. They are also good for baking, chipping and steaming – for best results keep the skin on to retain the vibrancy of their colour.
Being one of our colourful varieties, Highland Burgundy Red is rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanin which lays claim to a variety of health benefits including improved cardiovascular health, dementia prevention and increased longevity. As well as the fact that potatoes are very low in sugar and salt and are gluten- and fat-free this variety is definitely one to try if you are looking for a healthy meal option.
