Lovely spuds

I bought these a week or so ago, they were very tasty and versatile with hardly a blemish. I'm ordering again. They also keep well.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

good roaster ....

these were pretty good potatoes for this time of year (summer). I note some of the reviews but I think people need to remember that buying an English winter potato in the middle of summer will be hit and miss. .. if you want oerfection then only buy in season.
