Royal Kidney

E/M

These are more commonly known as Jersey Royals but can only be called this when they are grown in the soil of Jersey which gives them their special taste which they are renowned. Classed as an early maincrop it can also be classed as an early due to the fact it is grown so early on some areas. Introduced in 1879 it is now considered to be a heritage variety that has stood the test of time and taste. Tubers are of a kidney shape with shallow eyes and white flesh and skin. The haulms of the plant are very strong growing. One of our earliest potatoes.

King Edward

M

King Edwards are probably the most famous potato on the market, They are a known for their excellent cooking and taste qualities. Once cooked they rarely discolour and offer a broad range of uses. King Edward started out as "Fellside Hero" in Northumberland, breeder "unknown". Then a merchant changed the name and linked it with the approaching coronation and it became England's best known variety for a century. The striking part red colouration helped develop its popularity but the consistent demand over the years is a testament to the eating and cooking qualities, Historically, the number of copy cat varieties is another testament. This is a great general usage potato with a wonderful flavour.

Forty Fold

M / L

S

Fortyfold is the oldest culinary British variety still available. It dates from around 1800 and was described as an "old type" in Victorian literature. It is thought to have come from the North West of England and had some publicity as being the original potato used in Lancashire hotpot and lobscouse, the Liverpool equivalent. The variety is a tall, vigorous late maincrop with huge yields of round tubers of all sizes splashed with mauve. They have a high food value with an interesting good nutty flavour, unlike anything today. I thrill to think that this was a variety known to Nelson's sailors and Wellington's troops.

Skerry Blue

M / L

This is an old, late maincrop from Ireland which pre-dates the famine of 1845. It is low yielding but of the highest quality with very high dry matter. Its short oval tubers have blue skin with cream coloured, floury flesh. It is important historically because it is said to be the only variety with enough blight resistance to grow in the famine years. Unfortunately,during the famine, very few possessed tubers because everyone relied on high-yielding Lumpers . Does well here and is a great eater! Very rare.
