I have just begun to harvest my King Edward potatoes. The soil is sandy and very slightly alkaline. The potatoes are all healthy but rather small. I wanted some really large ones for jacket spuds.  The Charlottes did well. Any suggestions improving  next year's King Edward or  suggest another for a baking ,boiling and jacket all-rounder main crop? Thanks.

My brother is a large  commercial potato grower - he recommends Cara for ease of cultivation, disease and pest resistance and flavour - its a great baking potato

He also agrees with Thompson & Morgan that it tolerates dry conditions well - he grows on light land. 

I prefer Maris Piper for mashing 

Thank you Dovefromabove, that's really helpful.
