Miniature potatoes

Has anyone bought these from Tesco? Husband bought some last week and I find they take ages to boil soft. They're too small to peel, just wash and boil.
I'm wondering if they're very immature and the starch hasn't formed properly yet. Some are slightly green inside. I'm thinking of taking them back.
Their baby potatoes are ok, they're a bit bigger.

If they are green inside I would definitely take them back, green potatoes are not good for you to say the least!

We had some last week, they were fine, not green and took normal time to cook. Maybe you were unlucky.

thanks for the replies.
I opened the second bag today and roasted them whole and they were ok.
Maybe just unlucky with the firt bag.
