The King Edward potato was originally named 'Fellside Hero' by its Northumbrian grower in 1902, but with Coronation fever in the air a merchant changed the name to associate the variety with the new King. In this comprehensive guide, Alan Romans explains how to plant, maintain, harvest and store potatoes; he explores their history and provides an illustrated reference to over 130 varieties, scoring each for its relative qualities and resistance to disease.
