Harvesting is now underway on this unique potato. Prices start very expensive,but as volumes increase this will help to push prices down.
These beauties should run through until approximately late August.
Did you know that a approximately a third of Jersey is taken up with the growing of this outstanding potato?
"Besides being unique to Jersey, the Jersey Royal enjoys EU protection of designation of origin in much the same way that France was granted sole use of the word 'champagne'. The Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) is an official recognition granted by the EU to protect the product as it is produced in its country of origin. In other words, if a batch of potatoes doesn't have the PDO it isn't the genuine article." © States of Jersey 2015
