Do not try to cook by boiling.
As these potatoes are classed as Maris piper I thought they would make excellent mash, how wrong i was. These potatoes turn to mush when boiled, nothing like Maris piper i have bought from other shops they seem to have no starch in them and are very dry which causes them to disintegrate as soon as they are brought to a simmer.
Terrible potatoes and customer service in
Don't waste your money. These are consistently terrible quality, by the time you cut all the black rotten bits away you might as well throw them all in the bin. Customer services in store do not want to know, told me I couldn't have a refund, even with receipt, and would have to get them out of the bin to take into store!!!
No problems with these
I have always bought these potatoes, They’re the best for roast, chips and mash. You need to cut them in small pieces for mash though or they will fall to pieces. They make the best chips. I do find they sometimes have scabby bits on the skin but it scrapes off, considering the problems the farmers have had with no rain this year, I’m satisfied with these. I’ve never had to put a whole one in the bin.
Very poor potatoes
Very poor, black cuts and eyes, scabby mottled skin and mostly very small potatoes which disappear after cutting away the eyes and cuts. Not worth the bother so in the bin they went. I stopped buying potatoes some time ago from Tesco due to the poor quality but this week I was unable to get to the shops and had a home delivery. Unfortunately it is getting more and more difficult to get all the shopping from Tesco due the removal of so many products from the range and the poor quality of some of the products on offer, forcing customers to shop elsewhere.

Poor quality for a great potato
It's normally a quality potato and I know it's been a struggle for farmers this year but , it's obvious there is no quality control as they are full of blight , your might just as well not sell them .
Most of the potatoes were purple/black
Twice I have bought these and each time when I peeled them they were purple. The latest bag had only 4 potatoes I could use. Won't buy them again.
Not what I expected
Despite cooking these in varioyus ways, they came up 'grey', and not even good for dauphinase?
Full of black stuff
Full of black stuff and a lot of the black that goes right through the potatoes making them unusable - I cooked chips in an air fryer and only noticed the black as I was tossing them - they ended up tossed in the bin and had to start again - I have no idea what the black stuff is but it is getting worse and through all of the potatoes I am buying not just these
