Potato Apache (Maincrop Albert Bartlett Seed Potato)

SKU: 44698

1.5kg pack

Solanum tuberosum

From :- To be confirmed

A very striking potato! Small and round with a warm red skin dotted with cream with a lovely smooth texture. Scrubbed and cooked whole, Apache makes a delicious change from traditional roast potatoes. The contrasting colours stay bright if blanched before roasting whole in their skins, giving an excellent, almost sweet, buttery, chestnut flavour.

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.
