A pig of a black breed, now rarely kept commercially.
- On the pig front, we've got Gloucester Old Spots, Tamworths, Berkshires and even Middlewhites - wonderful beasts with squashed noses.
- The nineteen British pigs that flew to Japan were made up of seven British Landrace, two Welsh, eight Large White and two Berkshires.
- Unlike most mass-produced pigs, which have had much of their fat bred out of them, Berkshires have a healthy marbling of fat that gives the hams they yield a rich, meaty texture; cherry, apple, and hickory smoking adds flavor.
