For lovers of floury potatoes, this is the perfect all-rounder. It is the most widely grown maincrop potato in Ireland and for good reason – it is versatile, hardy and easily cooked. Noted for its pink skin and yellow flesh, the Rooster is equally suited to boiling, steaming, baking, roasting and chipping - as we have proven with our Meade Irish Rooster Chips. This flavourful potato has a bit of a sweet, nutty taste and a beautiful buttery texture.
Harvested late August through October, but available all year round in shops nationwide.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark and dry place.
