Desire or the ones that say 'for roasting' on the packet?

Either King Edwards or Maris Piper.
Do not be tricked into buying any other kind just because they claim to be good all rounders on the packet.

I vote King Edwards too...

Oh I might be wrong with the desrie then....

Maris Piper for me.

estima - they are generally what you get in Sainsburys value packs and they are really good all-rounders.

King Edwards are good if you par-boil them then bash them round the pan to get them all floury before they go in the hot fat...but I've done baby new potatoes quite successfully in their skins too!

Maris Piper

King Edwards, then maris piper. Desire( esp red ones) are fab for mash, but not great for roasting imho!

Chip shops always buy either Maris Piper or King Edwards so both are good for cooking in hot fat.

I always use Desiree. .

It's got to be Maris Piper everytime.
