Maris Peer really are a wonderful growing potato. They are perfectly suited for patio growing and for garden use, producing a unique lightly scented purple flower.
Tuber-wise they have nice firm creamy flesh which holds up well after cooking. The flavour is very good and is preferred by many top chefs. You will even see “Maris Peer” mentioned on menus as an accompaniment – which is an achievement in itself.
You can expect heavy yields of decent sized tubers – enjoy these boiled. Or when harvested a little earlier they make a great small salad potato.
Another good “Christmas Cropper”!

"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."
