Nicola Potatoes are oval and long, with smooth, pale yellow-buff skin and deep yellow flesh.
These are waxy potatoes that hold their shape very well when cooked.
They have very good flavour.
One of the best potatoes currently (early 2000s) around for salads.
If you want to bake it, try it in a microwave oven.
Nicola Potatoes were developed by the Saatzucht Soltau-Bergen potato breeding company in Germany.
