Product Information


Seed Potatoes

Highland Burgundy Red is an early main crop variety dating back to at least the 1930’s.

Tubers are oval or long oval and Highland Burgundy Red seed potatoes have a delicious mild, slightly sweet taste and a floury texture.

The flesh is a light red colour surrounded by a white outline just under the skin and it retains this unique colour after cooking.

Makes excellent novelty chips, crisps and a wonderful coloured mash.

Highland Burgundy Red is a real novelty potato to produce at a dinner party and it is said to have been used by the Savoy Hotel to add appropriate colour to a meal for the Duke of Burgundy in the mid-1930’s and was named in his honour.

When freshly dug the skins of Highland Burgundy Red seed potatoes are a bright red colour but this becomes more russet with an underlying burgundy tone as it seasons.

It is said to resemble some of the old type potatoes which are still grown in South America.

Many nutritionists claim that the antioxidants in Highland Burgundy Red Seed Potatoes provide many health benefits, including some protection against a number of diseases.

Grow some this season and give yourself a taste of the past.

We ask all our buyers to please remember plants are living items and their appearance changes with the seasons. This is quite normal and not a matter for any worry or concern, your plants will look great during the growing season. Please don’t panic if a plant looks different to the image on the website. It is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just ‘resting’ before it bursts into action in the coming season. Plants do look very different throughout the year. Particularly in winter, many shrubs lose their leaves and will look rather bare and stick-like and from August onwards many perennial plants may not even be showing above the soil.
