One to grow if you’ve suffered from or concerned about blight, with excellent blight resistance and large yields of similar sized potatoes. This red skinned variety has been bred from the famous Rooster variety and has a dry, fluffy texture making it ideal for mash, roasts and chips and with deliciously crispy skins and a buttery taste, will make the perfect baker too! This superb all rounder has a reputation for being drought tolerant and also has good scab and slug resistance. It stores well so can be enjoyed for many months after harvest.

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.
