If you walk into a chip shop you will more than likely end up eating some Maris Piper. The UK’s most popular variety, Maris Piper is the choice of the chippies. It is the cooking and frying qualities of Piper that made this potato stand out from the crowd and today it is still grown on a large commercial scale.
The tubers are oval in shape with a white skin and cream coloured flesh. It is also a good long-term storage potato. Maincrop maturity with high yields, many tubers per plant and medium dry matter.

"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."
