Excellent potato
Saturday, 7 January 2017  |  Natalija

We have been growing Kestrel potato for several year now and it is a must in our allotment. It has excellent taste and produces smooth and uniform tubers that are quite large in size. Kestrel has excellent slug resistance.

Have grown Kestrel for 3 years now and have been very happy with yield and taste. I recommend the variety.

Grown on the allotment in heavy clay soil infested with slugs & snails & subject to other plot's blighted potato crops....they still never fail to give good yields of excellent size & quality! Won first prize in local show 2 years running. Highly recommend.

Excellent all round but especially good chipper. Leave the skins on for great chips.

I have been growing this variety for 4 or 5 years, since it was recommended to me by the RHS, as a 2nd early/maincrop type. It has been consistent in terms of flavour and cropping and I would not be without it, although I do try other varieties as well.

If you only grow one potato grow this variety

Best potato I have grown - good crop, good flavour, not eaten by slugs and can be used for every way of cooking. It makes good roast potatoes in my experience. This variety and Charlotte are the potatoes to grow!
