This French-bred, highly popular potato is the salad variety of choice of many discerning chefs. The smooth skinned tubers have a light yellow flesh which has a wonderful flavour and delightfully waxy texture. A further advantage is its resistance to scab and blight making it a must for all potato lovers!

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 the following pack sizes:

- 1kg pack, containing 8-14 tubers

- 2.5kg pack, containing 20-35 tubers

- 5kg pack, containing 40-70 tubers

Been Growing them for a few years. Tried many others, but only this variety seems to be mostly unattractive to slugs. Variable tuber sizes and not the best cropper, but reliable. Personally I think they make the best roasties.!!

Charlotte is my favourite salad potato. Also very suitable for dishes such as Bombay potatoes when you want the potato to hold its form.~~As well as being robust against blight, it also seems to be resistant to wireworm, although it may be that it is harvested before the wireworms hatch.
