For the last few years I have grown British Queen, Charlotte, Kestrel and Yukon Gold. They have all performed well. If I had to drop one it would likely be Kestrel, simply because it does not quite match the others for flavour, other than that it is a cracker, good yield, cooks well and the slugs don't seem to like it. Difficult one to call really. My 'other', Yukon Gold, is a beauty.

charlottes, maris peer and kestrel are my staples ... plus I have some Belle de Foutaine (sent as a replacement for Ratte) as salad potatoes.  All have done well, but if I had to drop one it would be the Maris Peer.  I like wiljas, but since I can buy them at a reasonable price cash from the local farm when mine run out, they aren't using valuable space.

First year that I've grown Charlotte.

I will be growing mostly these next year as they're soooo tasty and are rather pricey in the shops. A few rows of Kestrel as well.

I'll be growing virtually all 2nd earlies from now on with a row of 1st and main. Quicker turn around of space, will hopefully harvest before any blight and spuds like Charlotte are expensive.

Thanks to all who have taken part. :) We'll close the voting tomorrow as you should all have harvested by now (apart from Christmas tatties).
