Re: Kiwi Spuds?

Found some Ilam Hardys...$10 for a 5 kg bag at a chinese greengrocer.... they look and taste OK.

Twice the price of Ruas and Agrias..?

All seem to come from Bombay Hills or Pukehoho... nothing found from the S island.

May take a run out to the Hills in a few days to see if better chance of getting cheaper in bulk from the spud packers.

Farmers' markets? I find the ones in Oz and NZ a bit poncey.... I'm used to markets like this one in the Atacama....

and also ... not agreat fan of Kumara
