New potatoes for Easter at a high price

Despite colder than average temperatures some Swedes will enjoy new potatoes with their herring this Easter weekend.

In a sure sign that spring is on the way, the first batch has gone on sale in southern Sweden, but at a premium: SEK 400 to 600 per kilo, reports the newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad.

It was the second year in a row that Johan Sandgren, a farmer near Höganäs in the province of Skåne, was the first to deliver his greenhouse-planted potatoes to the market.

“It’s been a long winter,” he told the newspaper, justifying the high price.
