Shetland Black


Shetland Black potatoes originate from the Shetland Islands where they are first recorded as being bred in 1923. With a very dark purple-black skin and a cream flesh interrupted by a purple ring just under the skin this is an attractive potato with a light, floury flesh. Perfect for roasting, baking, wedging or used to make interesting crisps.

* 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! *
