Cornish potatoes are often regarded locally as signaling the start of the summer season. Famous for their soft, pale skin and sweet, creamy texture, these potatoes are extremely popular with consumers.

Branston have had another successful year of crops thanks to the warm, southern climate and high light levels encouraging growth.

George Christoudias, Sales and Marketing Director, commented:

“We’re very excited to be working with such a successful chef to launch our much-anticipated Cornish crop this year. With Jack on board, we hope to further showcase these fresh, seasonal potatoes, which are always very popular with Tesco customers.”
