Maincrop potato varieties occupy the ground longer than other kinds, but produce the heaviest yields, often with very large tubers ideal for baking.

Solanum tuberosum 'King Edward' bears heavy crops of large, well-flavoured potatoes. The tubers have creamy white, floury flesh, making them ideal for roasting. Solanum tuberosum 'King Edward' shows good resitance to rots and scab, but can be vulnerable to blight.
