The great potato quiz! by Chris Stockwell

Posted on 9th September, 2016

I was browsing Amazon, as you do, when I spotted a book on the humble spud for 1p. It seemed rude not to take advantage of that so I bought it. I turned out to be an ex Neath Port Talbot Library book.

Unfortunately the first five pages covering the potato’s history were missing, so I can’t enlighten you on their development. You would be interested in the wonderful and expressive names of some varieties - which I have used in the list below, with some following the convention of naming them after the breeder; hence Mr Bresee, Lord Rosebery and Sharpe’s Express among others.

As usual, one name is missing from the puzzle. Email your answer to hollyvillas@hotmail.co.uk. First correct answer gets a pint or a G&T at the Good Intent.
