We have included 3 fantastic varieties of special seed potato varieties: Charlotte, Pentland Javenlin and Desiree, which are all packed with a very good flavour. These have been held in cold store until now and will grow rapidly once planted - right up to the end August to give you ‘new’ potatoes through autumn and even up to Christmas:
'Charlotte' - One of the most popular salad potatoes in the UK, the instantly recognisable, oval-shaped tubers can grow much larger than other salad varieties and have a firm yellow waxy flesh. Perfect for potato salads or boiled and dripping in butter.
'Pentland Javelin' - An early variety, producing lots of small, tasty potatoes. Ideal for boiling and also for roasting and baking.
'Desiree' - Creamy-yellow flesh with red skin, great for chips, roasting, jacket potatoes or simple boiling.
Note: Your seed potatoes will need chitting prior to planting. On receipt, stand them in an egg box in a cool, light room so they can begin chitting (shooting). Leave for 3-4 weeks, and short dark shoots (chits) will emerge. Take care not to damage these when handling or planting.
Keep your potatoes well watered as they grow - dry conditions will result in a considerably reduced crop.
