Bred in the Isle of Arran and introduced in 1918 to celebrate the ending of World War 1. Nice oval tubers and vivid blue/purple skin contrasts with it's bright white flesh.Given a long growing season this is a high yielding variety.
Arran Victory is floury, very tasty and makes wonderful mash, It is also a very good variety for baking and roasting.
Give them a try, if nothing else for the novelty of blue skin!
Certified Irish Seed
- Early planting in Feb-March for an August harvest
- Plant normally April for a September-October harvest
With such a high dry matter, Arran Victory needs to be simmered gently not vigorously boiled.

"They look a bit exotic, which of course they are, but the taste is simply superb. I know they always say they are splendid when roasted but for my money they are best gently steamed till the psychological moment of perfectly cooked. Then you get the full floury tastiness of roasted chestnut and you wish you had cooked twice as many."
"Have just removed my first batch of "Gold" from my Allotment.
I planted them out the second week of March after Chitting them on the windowsill.
From 1 seed Potato, i have harvested 3lb of Gold.
Had roast Potatoes with my Dinner and a good portion of Chips at supper time.
Well worth the money, and the taste is just fantastic.
So glad i got my order in early."
