Ireland: Get peeling those Bikinis – but not on the beach

Bikini: the latest potato variety from the same team that brought the Rooster to international prominence. Described as a novel red and white skinned first cousin of the Rooster, the first batch of Bikini spuds hit the shelves in Tesco stores over the weekend. It has been grown by a number of farmers supplying Tesco packer, Country Crest, and has yielded 20t/ac in its first year of commercial growing. It was developed by Teagasc crop scientist, Denis Griffin in conjunction with Irish Potato Marketing (IPM).
