Here at K&K Produce we source our New Season Mediterranean Potatoes from Cyrus & Italy.
The distinctive red clay soil of Cyprus is perfect for growing potatoes, and is even grown from the island’s interior to its coast to extend the season of this versatile, thin-skinned potato. Hundreds of small Cypriot growers contribute to the crop, which is popular in Ireland for its fine, earthy flavour. Cyprus potatoes are ideal for both boiling and baking, and they also make very good chips.
Our Italian potatoes are grown in good sandy soil. Italian potatoes, are characterised by their creamy texture and loose fluffy skins.
The Mediterranean Potato is available from February to October.
