"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."
