Comber potato fans need wait no longer as local supplier, Glens of Antrim Potatoes, prepares to harvest and deliver its first batch of new season spuds to Asda stores across Northern Ireland this weekend.
The EU protected Comber Earlies are grown in and around the village of Comber in Co. Down – an area known for its fertile soil and favourable climatic conditions – and are one of the most popular local potato varieties in Northern Ireland.
David Morrow from Glens of Antrim Potatoes commented, “Comber potatoes, which gained official PGI status in 2012, are known the world over for their high quality and delicious flavour. We’ve been working in partnership with members of the ‘Comber Earlies Growers Co-Operative’ over the last few months to plant and cultivate this local delicacy and we’ve now reached the optimum time to harvest. We’re thrilled to be able to share our first delivery of this season’s Comber potatoes with Asda customers this week.”Read more
