Preparation and Usage

  • Hob (for boiled) Peel potatoes and if needed cut into evenly sized pieces. Place in a saucepan and cover with boiling water. Return to the boil, cover and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes until tender. Drain and serve. For mash: Follow the hob instructions. After draining return to a warm hob for 1 minute to dry. Add milk, butter and seasoning according to preference. Mash until creamy smooth and serve.

    Oven (for roasts) Pre-heat oven. Put 2 - 4 tbsp. of vegetable oil in a roasting tin and place in oven. Peel and cut potatoes into evenly sized pieces and parboil for 10 minutes. Drain thoroughly removing excess water; shake in pan to roughen the surfaces of the potatoes. Carefully transfer the potatoes into the hot roasting tin, turn in the oil and season. Return to the oven for 55 - 0 minutes, turning occasionally until golden (no darker).

not fit for a casserole should state useage

1 stars

Tried in a casserole dismal failure wouldn't be cooked properly no matter how long tried


3 stars

these look and cook like Albert Bartlett roosters, but they're smaller and, though the bag is the same size, you get less.

Lovely and versatile

5 stars

I hadn't bought these before but I will definitely be doing so again. They have a lovely yellow colour and are excellent for mash and for making chips.

Rubbish roast potatoes

1 stars

Won’t buy again. Wanted fluffy roast potatoes and all rounder, these are too waxy.

good quality and lasted well

Not good quality

1 stars

I have never bought red potatoes before, did so because there was no white variety available. I have to say, I am really disappointed as they are not good quality. They look good on the outside, taste ok, but majority are either rotten, or rotting on the inside, so a lot of waste trying to get rid of the dark spots. Waste of money, will never buy again!

Top of the Crops!!

5 stars

I was upset when I saw these lovely red potatoes were ''currently unavailable''.So relieved to see them back on the shelf at Tesco. Tesco Finest Reds are the only potato I will eat, I was brought up on Red potatoes for every dinner meal as my Dad grew his own 'Desiree' beauties in his vegetable garden. so believe me when I say I am an 'expert' when it comes to recognising a really quaity Red potato - I'm the world's fussiest when it comes to knowing a great Red potato! . After all, we all know....there are Reds and there are Reds....and these are the top of the crop! Well done Tesco, please ensure you keep stocking these, and please don't put the price up because your customer's are telling you they love them, and I will certainly continue to buy them.

This is the best potato I have ever bought for mas

5 stars

This is the best potato I have ever bought for mashing. It seems to have attracted some adverse criticism which, if my bag is typical, is really undeserved. It may be that some of your suppliers are not as careful as they should be if that criticism is genuine. I will buy them again soon as we really liked them. What is the name of the variety? I would like to grow a few tubers in my garden just to check if they are difficult to grow. I advise potential customers to examine the pack; it is easy to check the condition of the contents. My bag was full of good looking deep red potatoes and they were superb eating, mashed.

These potatoes make the best mash ever
