Potatoes

Hello Everyone
Every year I grow Maris piper potatoes but they dont grow very big . So I'm after a variety that will give me a good crop of decent size potatoes.  Any ideas 
Thanks
Baz

    Charlotte always did well for me. But I'm cutting down now I'm older so don't grow them any more. Charlotte were small and like new potatoes when dug early, then I left them in the ground and they matured to be big ones. They kept well in the ground so I dug them as I needed them. My soil is well drained.
    Dordogne and Norfolk

    Thanks Colin I've heard of both varieties but never knew how big they grow . I'll give them a go as well as the Charlotte 
  • Charlotte have always done well for me too.
