We are often asked which the best potato to grow for Roast Potatoes is. Roast Potatoes are the centrepiece of your Sunday dinner or any special occasion. The forward planning to grow your own meal from scratch is incredible. We grow over 40 seed potato varieties that are deemed to be great for roasting - dry fluffy potatoes are ideal for roasting and tend to be main crops. We shouldn't have favourites from our baby potatoes, but we have compiled a list which is Family Skea favourites and in no way is definitive! There are so many variables such as whether you like coloured potatoes. Here are five out of our huge range, in no particular order that we (currently) love! If you buy all five you will get £1 of each net - but if you'd prefer other varieties, that is no problem.
