Poor Jerseys.

WE have had our first Jersey Royal potatoes of the season ... and yet again they have disappointed.

I know it's become normal for older people to complain that Jerseys aren't as tasty as they used to be; after all, summers used to be endless and everybody left their front door on the latch in those good old halcyon days of sepia nostalgia.

Besides, taste is subjective. But I still don't think they are as good as they used to be.

Perhaps they have become a victim of their own success. They used to be grown in modest quantities using seaweed as a natural fertilizer. Now they are a PS30m a year export and many are grown under plastic. What do you think?
