Look forward to hearing their comments about Elfe tigerburnie. I bet they've some useful recommendations for their own favourite spuds too.

I like Roosters, too, but I am still convinced Elfe are in a class apart.

I ran out of my own potatoes much earlier this year than last, so bought both Roosters and Elfes at Lidl. My money is with Elfe any day of the week. Astonishingly good spud, especially when baked. BTW, worth microwaving one for about 2-3 minutes and then crisping in the oven for 30 minutes - wonderful.

Also a great boiled potato, especially when skins are kept on.

Just out of curiosity, did anyone have any success with Elfe potatoes? I'm looking to grow these next year along with a couple of other varieties.

Well I've just bought 1.5kg of these now and they will be coming on the 22nd January and I'll be putting these into bags.

I'm also going to be growing 3 other varieties in bags with those varieties being Casablanca, Charlotte and Inernational Kidney.

I'll be honest with you, I'm growing these in bags because it looks like an easy way to follow where the potato will grow and when it comes to digging, I can be really lazy. Here's hoping I have a good update next year between August and October.

Can't go wrong with a bit of Elfe and Sayftee at meal times.


Pa, behave yourself ! I had two glasses of wine with my dinner but even I spotted that one ! :lol:
