Description: This is a potato that simply appeared growing wild around my fruit trees many years ago and where ever I go it seems to appear. I have never seen it in any other garden, and for many years thought it was King Edward. Henry Harrington put me right on King Edwards (he gave me his) I can see that although it is the same shape and flesh, the colouring is the opposite of the old King Edwards. The real ones are white with red blotches. These are red with white blotches and they are a great early potato. I prefer them to Jersey Bennes in the north
