We are very impressed with this variety - with bright red skin and a yellow flesh, the tubers have a wonderful flavour and texture. It is a most versatile maincrop variety - delicious when boiled, steamed, Mashed, baked, roasted or made into tasty wedges. It is robust and easy to grow with good disease resistance to many of the common problems found in British gardens. We all know how stringent supermarket taste and texture tests are and the response back from a leading company when they sampled Caledonian Rose was "Unbelievable! Absolutely fabulous."

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.
