Markies potatoes are going head to head with the infamous Maris Piper, and some would argue they are winning. They have excellent cooking and frying qualities to match Piper but they have the advantage of better blight resistance and overall higher disease resistance. 

Very low requirement for nitrogen. High tolerance to drought stress. Late foliage maturity, but, early in setting tubers. 
If you fancy a change from Maris Piper, but still want the same great qualities, then these are for you!

"They look a bit exotic, which of course they are, but the taste is simply superb. I know they always say they are splendid when roasted but for my money they are best gently steamed till the psychological moment of perfectly cooked. Then you get the full floury tastiness of roasted chestnut and you wish you had cooked twice as many."


"Have just removed my first batch of "Gold" from my Allotment. I planted them out the second week of March after Chitting them on the windowsill. From 1 seed Potato, i have harvested 3lb of Gold. Had roast Potatoes with my Dinner and a good portion of Chips at supper time. Well worth the money, and the taste is just fantastic. So glad i got my order in early."
