Our first crop of early potatoes have been harvested and taste delicious.
Carlotte (Second Early)
A very popular salad variety producing yellow skinned, waxy tubers and creamy yellow flesh. Lovely flavour and excellent either hot or cold.
They can be baked or boiled
Prone to slugs and foliage blight.
Desiree (Early maincrop)
A very popular red potato. Pale yellow, firm waxy flesh. Versatile for cooking.
Good drought resistance
Good for roasting, baked, boiled, mashed, with salads hot or cold or as chips.
Not that prone to slugs but some had a bite out of mine, Disease Powdery scab.
Good for growing in poor heavy soils
