A sample of sixty panellists was selected from the Sainsbury's Consumer Panel. Each week they were given a different variety of new potatoes which they were asked to take home and use as they normally would, recording their results on a questionnaire. Eleven different varieties were tested, some two to three times. Some well known varieties were interspersed amongst the less well known. The results have shown that there are some new varieties which match up to the standards of the present ones marketed by J. Sainsbury and also that different varieties are well suited to specific and different types of preparation.
