Alan's Top Varieties


"My latest book, The People's Potatoes, has over 400 named varieties. I guess I could have doubled that with so many varieties to choose from. The list on this website is a hit list of great potatoes. Recommendations are based simply on what has worked for me over the past 38 years of potato growing. Most of the newer introductions are omitted and the comments here are edited down from the book which has more detail.


In alphabetical order and maturity and waiting for you to go out and grow them or find them, some will be easier than others!"


Select one of the potato varieties below and get stuck in!
