I work on 148g cooked potato (boiled) as an average one. Below is a link that will give you weights/diameter/large/small/etc. etc. along with the calories for various potatoes, raw and cooked.

I HATE that SP has some foods with a non-weight measurement.

Ugh! Don't you hate it when they don't define the size?

I'm not a world class cook, but I Googled and come up with a few theories.
This one looks about right to me but it's subjective:

•Medium potato: 2 to 3" in diameter, 5-8oz
•Large potato: 3 to 4.25" in diameter, 8-12oz

Spark's Nutrition guide (where you type in a name of a food) lists this below:

Small: 1.75" - 2.5" diameter
Med: 2.25" - 3.25"
Lrg: 3" - 4.25"

Sparks only lists diameter (and not length) nor weight. A 6 inch 2.25" diameter potato will have more mass & calories than a 4 inch 2.25" diameter potato. And their diameter ranges overlap so I'm scratching my head at Sparks on this.

Sorry - wish I could be of more help. Curious how the cooks out there reply to this question!
Maybe post your Q on Spark Recipes?

When a recipe calls for a large potato, either sweet or white, how much should it weigh?
Thanks
Linda
