    I wonder what this poll is for, because the methodology is utterly flawed if it's being used for anything serious! You can't keep adding new options throughout the duration of the poll! That utterly distorts the results.

    Why has this been given a sticky?

    There are many threads more worthy!
    The proof of the growing is in the eating.

    I like Desiree,King Edwards and Golden Wonder-I'm going to vote for Desiree as it's the only one I grew so far.I's lovely spud(good flavour and texture),all purpose(maybe except from salad),bulking early for a maincrop and heavy yielding.


    Maybe the poll should be more specific?I mean 1st early,2nd early and maincrop

    Hi all I'm a total newbie to this forum so hello!
    After 18 long months on the waiting list myself and OH have got out sticky mitts on an allotment and have just put down out tats.
    We have:
    International Kidney
    Pink Fir Apple
    Rooster
    Shetland Black heritage variety

    Anyone had any experience of the Shetland Black? ours originated from a rapidly chitting few in my dad's larder!! :-D

    I grew one once to try it. I couldn't find half of them in our dark soil - they kept coming up for years!

    I would say accent, but its not on the list. So i have dotted accord, which is meant to be a better version of accent. It suits my soil and is good scab resistance etc etc.
    I would put rooster for their roasting and flavour, but they dont like my soil here.

    Thanks for adding wilja to the list, I love wilja potatoes, they are the best tasting most versatile spuds and they store really well, I got my seed spuds off tattieman this year and am really pleased with the quality, am looking forward to lots of lovely spuds later in the year.

    I love potatoes - hard to pick one from

    Maris Piper
    Home Guard
    British Queens
    Duke of York
    Rooster

    and so on...

    I chose Maris Piper for the poll, it's such a lovely and versatile spud.
