'King Edward' Potatoes
 
Sub-Category:
 
Description: USER ENTERED : A 1902 heirloom from Northumberland, King Edward VII, was one of Britain's most popular varieties during the first half of the 20th century. Originally named “Fellside Hero”, and because of poor sales and lack of interest, John Butler of Scotter, by the advice of a Mr. Paxten renamed the variety to King Edward. This must have worked since by 1906 the variety was well known and was being recommended for its high yields and excellent cooking qualities. The light fluffy texture is great for baking and mashing.
