I grew King Edward for the first time last year and had a great crop, they beat Maris Piper and Desiree

Excellent cooking and taste qualities.

I have been growing this variety for three years, and every time i get a decent crop and good size potato.

A good taste but not the best of years!!

This was our first attempt at growing this variety and we were very pleased with the taste of the small harvest we did manage to gather. However the ridiculous amount of rain this year really affected the crop and some, too near surface, became mouldy due to the boggy ground. Didn't put us off though and will try again in 2013.
