Would you pay US$ 250 for a kilo of potatoes?

Obviously someone in Sweden would. This is how much the fields' first batch of new potatoes are priced at, according to news agency TT.

The farm that produced the eight kilos of precious tubers is in Båstad, in southern Sweden, and the buyers were one local shop, and one in Stockholm.

Local farmer Arnold Ebbesson says that the unusually warm weather means that people have already started asking when the new potatoes will be coming.
