Despatch: From 20th January 2020.
A sister to the hugely successful Sarpo Mira (introduced in 2005), Axona has attractive pink skin and creamy white flesh and is known for its outstanding blight resistance. As it grows, the tubers fill out to produce heavy yields of large, regular shaped tubers which are really tasty – suitable for all culinary uses, but really good for ‘jackets’.
We’re excited to introduce three more Sarpo varieties of seed potato – all bred and developed for their great taste and unique blight resistance. Whether for the veg garden at home or larger scale plantings in the allotment, we know you’ll enjoy harvesting these delicious, freshly dug spuds.
Potatoes are one of the most rewarding vegetables to grow. There’s the nurturing process of chitting, planting and earthing-up, the anticipation of a good harvest as you dig through the soil and, of course, the unbeatable taste of fresh, home-grown, potatoes.
All potatoes (except for maincrops) will benefit from ‘chitting’ prior to planting out. The chitting process encourages the seed to sprout, which then when planted, helps them to establish more readily, leading to bigger crops. Simply place them, blunt end up, in an old egg box until the shoots are approximately 1½ to 2½cm (½ to 1in).
Potatoes are delivered in 1.5kg bags, each pack containing approx. 15-20 tubers.
