Some poor reviews on Tesco's website but I bought some today and I cooked them along with Tesco's finest baby potatoes to compare. I much preferred the Jersey Royals. Tesco's finest cooked softer and I felt were tasteless.

  • Quality & Freshness
  • At Tesco we believe in the importance of expertly selecting our seasonal produce for its freshness and quality. Working with trusted growers across Europe we ensure all our new potatoes are brought to you fresh throughout the year. In Jersey we work with Ian Le Brun whose family have been farming Jersey Royals in the gentle climate and fertile soils for generations. The earliest crops are planted on steep, south facing coastal slopes, known as côtils, where seaweed collected from the Jersey beaches is used as a natural fertiliser, a method dating back to the 12th century. The new potatoes are then harvested by hand an have a delicate, nutty flavour. Once harvested, the care continues as the new potatoes are packed and shipped daily to ensure you get them at their freshest.

Jersey Royals don't taste like Jersey Royals any more. They used to be lovely, now they're just OK small pots.

I agree they are definitely lacking in the strong flavour they used to have. I miss good old Ayrshire potatoes, they tasted amazing
Yes to the comments, still nice at the price. Is on the list for the next (nearly monthly) shop.
They lost their unique flavour when the growers stopped using seaweed as a fertilizer for economic reasons.
It’s good to know it’s not just me who thinks these are tasteless! Was about to jump in the car and drive 200 miles to Durham and Barnard Castle.
I bought 2 packets last week, very disappointed.
Overpriced, underflavoured, pointless waste of money - living on a past reputation that should have died at least 10 years ago when they last had some taste.

Not grown in the same way now - just grown to hold as much water as possible to bulk them up and make more money.
