Potato Maris Peer Second Cropping Kit
Potatoes are one of the most rewarding crops to grow, producing so much from so little. The smell of freshly dug soil as you lift them is unbeatable, as is their 'just harvested' taste. Savour freshly dug new potatoes from late autumn into winter - imagine lifting them first thing on Christmas morning! These late croppers produce slightly smaller yields than main season crops but if anything, this makes you appreciate them all the more!
These varieties have been kept in a cool store to stop them chitting but, once removed from our store in mid July, they quickly come into delayed growth. Planted in late July, they will crop from October and with a little straw protection, through to Christmas.
Collection includes 1.5kg tubers of Maris Peer and 1 Pack (3 Planters) of patio planters for your potatoes!
Maris Peer Smooth, yellow skin with a hint of sweetness and firm cream coloured flesh that tastes superb. The Maris Peer holds its colour and does not break up when cooked. It is ideal for eating hot or cold, simply outstanding for chipping and potato wedges. Has some resistance to scab.

They are also suitable for other tuberous and root crops, such as Jerusalem artichokes, carrots and parsnips. Size: Diameter 35cm/14in, Depth 45cm/18in.
