Is 'Lumper' one of the varities that was grown and survived the famine, or one that had been grown and was afflicted?


Lumper was THE potato of the Irish potato famine. That was the problem, they were only growing one potato which turned out to be very susceptible to blight.

It must have been one outstanding potato, if it was the only one they were growing!
