    I voted for the heritage variety, British Queen!

    Their water content is so low, that these potatoes roast and chip better than any other. This is not only through their texture, but their flavour too.

    I haven't met anybody that we've made them for, that hasn't been instantly converted!

    Regards

    I honestly cannot choose just one variety - I have grown many different varieties over the years and have now a regular group of four or five (dependent on seed availablity) that I would consider superb and all for different reasons and cooking styles.
    These would be
    Lady Christl
    British Queen
    Edzell Blue
    Foremost
    Rooster
    Rat

    British by birth
    Scottish by the Grace of God

    Kestrel for me. It suits my taste, suits my soil, is slug resistant and and is a moderate cropper of good sized, clean potatoes with shallow eyes!

    I'm a little disillusioned about GYO polls. If you get Charlotte, Kestrel and Golden Wonder as the top 3 you'll then put in quotations from here about some spud hardly anyone's voted for. You've got form!

    A little more help is needed to find the badge/poll/list. The only thing I can see on the right is shopping partners and I'm not keen to click on Dremel!
    It then drifts into pale greeness?

    Sorry just not seeing it
