Charlotte Scabbie Potatoes

I we have just lifted the first Two rows of our potatoes and a lot of them have like a scab marking on them. Can you give me any idea what it is or what we are doing wrong pleaseimage

    Common scab. Usually a sign that the soil is too alkaline. Still edible, you just need to peel them.

    Are you certain they are Charlotte potatoes?

    They look an odd shape and a lot scabbier than I have ever had.
