World's most expensive potato...at Tesco prices
The world's "most expensive and exclusive" potatoes are to go on sale across the UK for the first time this week at a major supermarket.
La Bonnotte, which is normally only grown on a small island off France, can sell for up to £400 per kilogram. But Tesco has sourced a new supply, grown in Jersey, and will be selling them from tomorrow for the equivalent of £2.65 per kilo. La Bonnotte commands a high price because normally only about 20,000kg is grown each year.
