Rooster is an extremely versatile potato which can be used in almost any dish! Developed in Ireland in 1991, today Rooster is Ireland’s favourite potato variety!
Rooster is a red-skinned, yello w-fleshed cultivar of potato, with floury yellow flesh. It is uniformly roundish in shape with shallow eyes making it easy to peel.
Rich in carbohydrates, Rooster potatoes are a fantastic fuel for our working bodies. Unadulterated and unprocessed, they are one of the best and most delicious sources of starchy energy in our diets. Roosters also contain some protein, little or no fat and have almost twice the amount of fibre as the same amount of brown rice. They are also a source of potassium, important for a healthy blood pressure and contribute a significant amount of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant and important for immune health.
It is a general-purpose potato. It can be boiled, mashed, chipped, roasted, steamed and baked.
