Description

A popular variety that produces high yields of oval/round,  red eyed tubers with soft moist flesh which are great for baking, chipping and boiling.

Excellent disease resistance, including golden eelworm, scab and blight, withstands drought and stores well.

A maincrop variety which is an excellent choice for an allotment, but can also be grown in pots and potato grow bags.

Supplied in 3 weight options 0.5kg, 1kg and 1.5kg with a minimum of 6 tubers per 0.5kg. 

All our tubers are produced in Scotland and are certified by DEFRA as reaching the high quality standards required to be classified as 'Certified Seed Potatoes'.

Chit (which basically means allowing your spuds to sprout!) your potato tubers in a cool, light place from January onwards approximately 6 weeks before planting out.
Once your seed potatoes have 3 growing eyes (sprouting shoots) plant out from late March to early May. Protect foliage from frosts with a fleece.

Plant in trenches 30cm apart, 10cm deep.

If using a potato grow bag, fill the grow bag with 15-20cm of vegetable growing compost and place 3 tubers per bag. Cover potato seeds with 5-10cm of compost. Place the bag in full or partial sun and water regularly.

Once the leaves starts to grow in the trenches, earth up the soil around the foliage to improve drainage and yield.

If using a potato grow bag keep topping up the compost to cover the green foliage and repeat this process every few weeks until the soil has reached the top of the grow bag.

Harvest when the foliage has died down or from August to October (approximately 5 months after they were planted out).
