VERY FLOURY, SOME BLIGHT RESISTANCE

Arran Victory was bred in the Isle of Arran by Donald Mackelvie. Victory, the oldest of the "Arrans" still grown, was named in 1918 in celebration of the ending of the war. It is rare and is one of only two blue skinned varieties still available for general cultivation. It is high yielding given a long season.

The tubers are round to short oval with blue skin, snowy white flesh and deep eyes. In Scotland they are still regarded with some awe as the premium late season variety.

RECOMMENDED COOKING METHODS

Arran Victory has a very high dry matter, they have exceptional flavour for mash. They have a fine texture which makes for the most wonderful white mash which will crisp beautifully if used as a shepherd pie or roast. They do make particularly good roast potatoes, and they will also fry, bake, steam and microwave.
