Potato Premiere (First Early Seed Potato)
The perfect early variety for making chips and roast potatoes, and one that is endorsed and used by McCain; the famous chip company so don't just take our word for it! An appropriate name for this delicious variety with a waxy, creamy texture. Expect a huge yield of oval, pale gold and thin-skinned potatoes which have a yellow flesh. Good disease resistance to many of the common potato diseases including blight.
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.
