Well, my King edwards have been a total disaster, dug them all up as the tops had died to pretty much nothing, and I got pretty much nothing underneath. The plants never did look good, and went limp at the first sign of sunshine. Something I've noticed, has King edwards always had red eyes? They are selling them in the shops and they have red eyes also. I can remember getting 14lbs of KEds from the local greengrocer when I was a kid and I dont think they had red eyes. Last spud I grew that looked similar was Cara.
