showing potatoes

I want to enter some Cara potatoes in our local show  which is judged by RHS judges. The schedule has classes for round white and round coloured, and I am stumped as to what class to choose, bearing in mind that Cara, although a white potato has pink eyes.  Please Help!

    Pretty certain that if it has pink eyes it's a coloured potato .... (or a white rabbit image)

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Thanks Dovefromabove, I had wondered if coloured meant just potatoes like all red etc, so will have a go.  Rabbits are a sore subject at the moment, one got into my veg plot and ate a whole row of kale and parsley!  My cat caught it eventually and brought it in through the cat flap, so I was able to take it back to its own habitat. Phew.

    Hello , there is a book that the RHS produce which explains the sort query you have , we enter a Village show that is Jugded to RHS standards and we asked to borrow the book ? , it was most helpful , why not see if the organisers have one image

  • GWRS, Many thanks for the information,  I think our local village show organisers have a copy, so will borrow for next year.
