Hi, Daffodilgirl.....my recommendation would be for either 'Swift' or 'Rocket', both super tasting spuds.
Regarding frost protection, if you don't plant too early, they won't need it. If we do get a very late frost, they can be covered with sheets of newspaper..... weighted down with stones or similar, of course.
Finally, when spuds do get nipped by late frosts, the damage isn't normally terminal, they will recover without damage to the tubers.
