Gourmet lines from Carroll's Heritage Potatoes

Twenty varieties of gourmet Carroll's Heritage potatoes are grown at Tiptoe Farm in Northumberland - awarded Britain's Most Beautiful Farm Award 2006 by the LEAF (Linking the Environment and Farming) accreditation scheme.

The potatoes are grown, stored, graded and packaged at Tiptoe and the company also has its own Heritage Seed Potato Company to offer complete traceability from seed to plate.

Varieties include the British Queen 1894 with an oval shape and white skin, bred by Archibald Findlay of Auchtermuchty, Fife, and forming part of the staple diet through both world wars.

The Red Kind Edward is a rare version of the King Edward variety, characterised by its red skin and white flushes.

The Yukon Gold is originally from Canada and has smooth yellow skin and yellow flesh.

Other varieties include the Salad Blue, Ratte 1872, Mr Little's Yetholm Gypsy 1899 and the Peachbloom 1923.

The potatoes are supplied in 12kg boxes containing eight 1.5kg bags.
