Maori potatoes or taewa are varieties of potato that Maori have grown for at least 200 years, and taewa refers collectively to some traditional varieties, including Karuparerā, Huakaroro and Moemoe. These are knobbly, smaller and more colourful than modern potato varieties.
Huakaroro is a waxy potato that is great for boiling. Has a buttery taste and is a good keeper.
Comes in a 500 gram bag.
