Floury,tasty, stores well,good against blight and slugs.
A lovely floury potato that stores well. Stayed blight free,but I did spray for blight. I have a lot of slugs in my patch but they did not do too much damage. Will be getting British Queen again next time. Review by Leo / (Posted on 07/01/2016)
