what should I ask for - yellow net bag?

are they always good?

I think I tried it once and wasnt to impressed.

I wonder if it has seasons?

So far used it all season this year and was happy. Try one sack and see. You ask for yellow net bag 5 kg. Nothing else comes in a net bag. Everything is 2.5 kg or the huge sacks or loose.

I have lately been using the Albert Bartlett Butter Gold Potatoes and they are absolutely delicious. Soft and creamy from inside too. Great also when made in tne crockpot.

You can only get them at Waitrose and Ocado. I don't go in person, but order online.

I use Sainsbury's Vivaldi baking potatoes, taste the difference. I know the reviews are bad but my kugel is amazing, never gone through a "bad season"

I have actually used both. The bigger packet works out much cheaper and is also very good so I would suggest you go for that. Please let me know how it comes out. I hope the crop is just as good now. Last time I made bulk, it was quite a few weeks ago.

No, the size bag is never an issue. The taste is the same with both sizes.

I don't know if the Lidl potatoes are the same in the UK as they are in Europe
But the green bag of Lidl potatoes (2 kilo) makes the most amazing kigel.
