Red Emmalie is a fairly new variety of potato bred in Germany with parents including La Ratte and Highland Burgundy Red. With a reddy-pink skin and matching flesh this striking variety has a waxy texture and retains its colour when cooked. Perfect for boiling, steaming, mashing or roasting to add some colour to your meal.
Being one of our colourful varieties, Red Emmalie 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.
* Please note: these are not certified seed potatoes. They’re not sprayed with chemicals so will grow if given the chance but we’ve grown them for eating. We recommend planting them in your oven, not in the garden! *
