Kerr's Pink (Maincrop Seed Potatoes)

SKU: 53007

1.5kg Pack

Solanum tuberosum

From :- To be confirmed

A favourite in Ireland due to its lovely taste and dry and floury nature – perfect for mashing! Tubers are normally short and oval with slightly deep eyes, creamy flesh, and should can be eaten simply in their beautiful pink skins. The floury, starchy texture and low water content makes them one of the best keepers of all. Good resistance to slugs.

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.
