Many years ago on a summer eve while visiting one of our family seed potato growers, we were served freshly-dug Cobblers, golf ball size, boiled and tossed with butter, salt, and parsley. Oh, scrumptious! The potatoes were good and so was the company, making for a memorable meal. A selection from Early Rose believed to have been discovered by an Irish shoemaker in the late 1800s, Cobbler has round, buff-skinned tubers with white flesh that's a little mealy, perfect for soaking up plenty of butter. Early maturing and exceptional eating qualities keep this variety in the seed trade. Resistant to blackleg and fusarium storage rot; immune to wart. Medium-spreading plant with lilac, white-tipped flowers. «Heirloom»
