Pre-European potato from Aotearoa New Zealand. (Taewa) A long potato with dark purple skin that retains its colour when cooked. Waxy when small, floury when large. Great boiled or steamed. Produces big crops but needs a long growing season. Ure is maori word for "penis". Nika is a transliteration of an offensive english word. The potato is also known as "tutaekuri", which means "dog poo". Inspite of the terrible names, this is a quintessential Maori potato, and the most recognisable taewa.
