Via @scotchtwit I discover there is a variety of potato (exhibitor grade) called the ‘Nadine’:

Potato ‘Nadine’ Exhibitor Grade (Solanum tuberosum)

Exceptionally smooth skin with shallow eyes. Cream flesh has firm, moist waxy texture and does not discolour on cooking. Double eelworm resistance and high common scab tolerance.

Even the picture is uncannily accurate:

Can I get an ‘amen’?

    I'm no expert but to me, *this* Nadine looks quite good value for money.
