Relatively new variety. Great skin finish making it a good candidate for the show bench. Makes very good chips.
Rocket seed potatoes were first released in 1987 and were the quickest bulking of all early potatoes. Rocket's ability to grow large crops of uniformed round tubers made it very popular. Tubers have white flesh and skin with shallow eyes and a mild taste. There is good resistance to blackleg, common scab and spraing. Harvesting Rocket before full maturity is recommended to avoid tubers cracking.
