Painting Masonite Siding

I'm looking for some advice on painting masonite siding. I am unsure what type of paint I should be using and whether I will need to prime or not.
The paint on it now has peeled off in large patches and will need some scraping first I would think.

would I need to prime over the exposed ares after scraping, or the entire surface? and what type of exterior paint should I look for?

any help would be much appreciated.

You need to prime the peeld areas. Prime the whole house only if you want to. But if the peeled areas are a lot, might as well do the whole thing.

Any good quality latex exterior primer/paint should be fine.
