Varieties

Pentland Javelin

We grow this as a new potato, but it is versatile to be an early general variety. Bright white flesh and a succulent texture that seems to hold for a long time. Bred in the 1960s and for those wanting the traditional taste of a new potato then look no further.

Roseval

This is the best salad potato around and very popular in France where it came from A very waxy variety that you want more of. Best boiled to enjoy the sweet aromatic flavour. The flesh is yellow and sometimes has a natural red colouring.

Red King Edward

You have heard of King Edward. Well this one is the same in every respect other than the skin is 95% red. I think it’s better than King Edward. The plant is stronger and the soil at Lodge farm really does bring out the famous quality. This is our mid-winter Christmas potato.

Kestrel

In my view the best tasting potato introduced since 1960s. It usually makes larger tubers and we aim to grow ours very large. The taste is reminiscent of Victorian potatoes, but what makes Kestrel so special is its ability to excel in all cooking purposes. We offer this as our mid-winter potato when Kestrel is still vibrant.

Wilja

Simply a good all-rounder with yellow flesh and a yellow russet skin. We will offer this early in the season autumn / early winter when it’s at its best, so you get the fresh young taste of this lovely potato.
