Spud size too varied. Too many tiny ones in bag.

3 stars

Inconsistent sizes in the bag with too many tiny potatoes. Too many tiny spuds mixed in there that aren't any use at all for chips or roasters. Ensure a consistent in-the-bag size please. Would greatly welcome King Edwards available as loose selection on the shelves rather than bagged. Same with Maris Piper.

Did not like the potatoes.

2 stars

Strange potatoes, we have purchased them twice, the potatoes do not cook well, hard in the middle and falling apart on the outside, I used them for mash last night. same again when cooking and the mash it made was a strange power texture, I MUST REMOVE THEM FROM MY FAVOURITES.

Best roasties ever

5 stars

Best flavour for roasting. Parboil for 7 mins before putting in oven with sunflower oil, scratch the tops with a fork, turn in oil to coat and cook on 200 or 180 fan. ( I use non fan because it keeps the oven cleaner.). Best roasties ever

All potatoes with a black marks under the skin...

All potatoes with a black marks under the skin... Very disappointed...

Need longer shelf life

1 stars

Short shelf life on potatoes picked. Some of them looked rotten. Would not buy again and would hope that any future potatoes would have a longer shelf life

Very poor quality

2 stars

I agree with other comments. We only had these delivered last Sunday which we then used on Wednesday. EVERY potato had several black spots all over, once they were pealed. Not much left after digging out the black. We were trying to cook them as small chunks for a salad, as we had no new potatoes. We tried at 20 mins and then at 15 mins. Every time the pan was just mush. King Edwards are supposed to be a good potato. I would doubt these are actually fresh from the field but Tesco should have better quality control I would not buy these again

Bin them

1 stars

Absolutely shocking, looked ok from outside but all grey patches, would not buy again.

How long in storage?

4 stars

Like these floury potatoes. They're much like Russets. 3+ days BBF? We used to get potatoes by 25k bags -they'd last months. With these, they're sprouting in three to five days, which means they're a previous crop and been in storage a long time. A bit difficult to eat 2.5k of potatoes in four days or so. Fresher potatoes, please.

Awful potatoes.

1 stars

The potatoes were awful, the worst i have ever purchased, i do not exaggerate when I say that every potato in the bag had black running through it. Managing to get enough potatoes to roast was difficult and then when they were cooked they weren’t very tasty, spoiling the dinner. I hope that this is a one-off as your products are usually very good.
