    Thanks all.

      Does Casablanca ring a bell. They look the same shape as my first early. But as it’s the only first early I have seen, My experience doesn’t count for much. V

          Hi vbgr
          Yes that's them Casablanca.
          As soon as I saw the name I remembered.

                Pulled up all mine today, yukon gold impressive large potatoes, outperforming pentland javelin quite considerably, probably 50% higher yield. They also still had some green in the foliage whereas the pentland javelin had died back. Now about to plant some kohl rabi and radicchio to replace them.
