Comber Potato CoNewtownards Down - Northern Ireland
The home of the Northern Irish potato is undoubtedly Comber, famed for its new season potatoes. The harvest of Spring Comber potatoes is such an important event in the Northern Ireland food calendar that it is even reported in the local press. The reason for this reputation and all this excitement is the geographic location of Comber, sheltered by the Mournes and the Ards Peninsula and protected from frosts by Strangford Lough. As a result of this unique micro climate, the potatoes here are harvested earlier than in other regions, in May or June.
