King Edward is one of the oldest of the UK potato varieties and was introduced to the market in 1902 by John Butler in Lincolnshire. It was the same year as the coronation of King Edward VII, hence the name. The reason that it still exists today is because of its excellent taste, and good keeping properties.

King Edward potatoes are commonly available across major retailers. King Edwards are recognisable from their creamy coloured skin with light red blushes.Β  Β It is a great all-rounder in the kitchen, with a medium dry matter is great for chips and wedges, but equally good boiled.Β  Try them for delicious roasties, jacket/baked potatoes or homemade oven baked chips.
