buff skin, white flesh
Slightly larger than a golf ball, great for roasting or mashing, with a smooth creamy texture. Like an early-season Elba for eating quality. Legend has it that an Irish shoemaker in the northeastern United States selected this variety from plants he grew from an Early Rose seed ball. First catalogued in 1876. Even dug early, Cobblers will store throughout the season. Resistant to mild mosaic and immune to wart. Medium-sized plant has white-tipped lilac flowers.
