What do you understand by this term. Tesco are selling 'Baby New Potatoes', variety Annabella and grown in the United Kingdom. Now Annabella is a first early, I have just checked, but this is only the middle of March. We are not talking about the quantities a gardener might just manage to force for himself or even commercial quantities - these are in Tesco quantities!
So how do they manage it? I would not have thought that they could be grown and harvested in tunnels yet, not even in the Channel Islands, and not in these quantities. Is it possible to cold store 2010 new potatoes for such a long period and, if so, can they really be called 'new' potatoes?
I am confused :-(
