Bred in Hungary, if blight is a problem in your garden this could be the answer to your prayers! Add to that its drought-resistance and the fact slugs don’t seem to like the pink-skinned tubers and you have rather remarkable spud, which is also a good keeper. Sarpo Mira has floury flesh and is a great all-round choice, being especially suitable for roasting, baking and chipping. 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 1 to ½cm (½ to 1in). Potatoes are delivered in 1kg bags, each pack containing approx. 8-14 tubers.

thoroughly recommend these potatoes. Grew really well in last summers drought, much better than my usual Desiree which was poor. Had a job to find enough small ones for this years Sarpo crop!
