Rocket are round, uniformly-sized potatoes with light-buff skin and white flesh.
They are marketed for direct to consumer sales.
They are waxy when harvested young and hold their shape well when cooked.
When harvested later, they are floury and very good for baking.
They have mild flavour (some people say bland.)
Popular in New Zealand.
Rocket Potatoes were developed by the Plant Breeding International Cambridge Plc in Cambridge, England in 1975 from a cross between two potatoes referred to as “F12/17” and “D42/8.”
