But the spud also cooks 25% faster.

The developer, Dr David Nelson, nicknamed Dr. Potato, said: “We’re looking at a variety that not only tastes great, but also saves roasting time.”

Nemo, a combination of fast-cook Peruvian Inca Bella and French coleslaw, took six years to perfect.

It has been developed by Lincolnshire growers Branston, where Dr. Nelson is director of agronomy.

A limited number of varieties, which require less water and fertilizer to grow, have been sold in Tesco like British Baked Potatoes at its finest.

Potato buyer at Tesco, Hannah Moseley, said: “They taste great and fat but are also light and spongy on the inside with a nice golden crunch on the outside – the perfect potato, basically.”
