Product Description

Fluffy, floury Red King Edwards are great for baking or chipping, and we think they are the best of all varieties we sell for perfect roast potatoes.

You could also make the most of their distinctive ruby coloured skins by simply cutting them into wedges and popping into the oven sprinkled with herbs and spices.

From carefully selected farmers who share our values and commitment to:
- Sustainable farming methods.
- Protecting and enhancing the countryside for wildlife and biodiversity.
- Only using pesticides and fertilisers when absolutely necessary.
- Linking the environment and farming.

A fine potato.

Lots of reviews of this product seem to reflect a single (often bad) experience, so here's one to balance them. I've bought these potatoes a number of times , and the quality has always been good. I've not found them to taste significantly different to regular King Edwards though, so you may not want to pay the extra if you don't need red potatoes.

Delicious but patchy quality

These are very tasty potatoes for mashing and roasting, but I've gone back to Maris piper. These potatoes are often full of bruises and deep black patches, meaning you have to excise so much that you lose half the potatoes. They also take a good 35 mins at a low broil to cook through to a good mashing and reasonably loose consistency, compared to 23 minutes for Maris piper.

I needed a floury potato for a potato pancake recipe... King Edward were recommended to be used. Sadly the most tasteless pancakes I've ever made... Didn't realise it was the potatoes until I then used them in a soup the following day... Tasteless potatoes!
