White Skin With Very Distinctive Pink Colouration.

King Edward potato seed is a high yielding medium sized oval tuber with creamy white slightly flouery flesh. Just about the most famous potato around - the classic Christmas roast potato!

A striking partly red potato always in consistant demand is a testament to its cooking and eating qualities.
