Product Information

 

 POTATO

Red King Edward

A very rare heritage variety dating from around 1916 when it was discovered growing as a sport of King Edward.

Some say it was originally named Fellside Hero by the Northumbrian grower who discovered it although others dispute this.

A late main-crop variety producing moderate yields.

Oval in shape the tubers of Red King Edward are medium to large in size with red or purplish-red skin occasionally flushed white.

The flesh is creamy or off-white in colour with an extremely floury texture and a superb potato flavour, so tasty that many people prefer it to the original King Edward variety.

Very versatile in the kitchen it can be Baked, Boiled, Roasted, Steamed or Chipped.

Red King Edward potatoes hold their distinctive red skin when cooked.

The plant is tall, erect with many fine stems and a soft feathery top.

The flowers are purple with white tipped petals and are carried above the small dark green slightly glossy open leaves.
