We grow our potatoes slowly and choose varieties for the best flavour. The varieties change every week as the season progresses, each with their own cooking virtues, flavour and appearance. We give you tips with every bag, to help you make the most of each week’s pick!

How to store potatoes

Keep new potatoes in the fridge and floury/all-rounder varieties in a paper bag somewhere cool and dark

How to cook potatoes

For floury and all-rounder varieties, peel, chunk and boil for 15 mins, then try mash with a twist. Beat mustard into it, add fresh herbs or parmesan or stir in cooked shredded cabbage or kale for colcannon. For something different with new potatoes, bake them with garlic and herbs in a parchment bag at 200℃ for 40 mins, to burst open and serve at the table.

Potato season

We start the season with new potatoes in early May, moving to salad potatoes in July. For the rest of the year we use maincrop varieties that change as the season progresses.

Potato varieties

Waxy varieties are good for boiling and in salads. These include Colleen, Charlotte, Lady Crystal, Lady Felicia, Jersey Royal, Maris Peer, Pink Fir Apple, Nicola and Novello. Our floury varieties for mash, chips, roasting and baking are King Edward, Cosmos, Desiree and Sante. Good all-rounders are Marfona, Robinta, Ostara, Romano, Orla, Valor, Estima and Maris Piper.

Organic potato farmer

We grow potatoes on our Riverford farms. Our early varieties do well on coastal fields, where the maritime influence protects them from frosts.
