Our 'Brookside' collection pack includes some of the more popular varieties which will give you potatoes all season. We have chosen them for their disease resistance, high yields, type and use.  The collection includes –

Arran Pilot | First Early – One of the nation’s favourite home-grown potatoes and we can see why – they have a great resistance to all forms of scab and scores a high 9 for spraing resistance.

Charlotte | Second Early - Charlotte potatoes are the most popular variety used for salad potatoes in the UK. This is because of their long shape with firm/waxy flesh and obviously their taste!

Desiree | Maincrop - Desiree is the potato celebrities cannot get enough of for the perfect roast potato! They produce oval red skinned tubers with pale yellow flesh, not only do they make the perfect roasts, but they are extremely versatile – you literally can do anything with this potato.

You will receive one 2kg bag of each variety. Our 2kg packs contain between 20 to 25 tubers graded 35 to 60 mm each.

Here is an idea for the planting and harvesting times for the different varieties -

When you receive your seed potatoes if they are not ready for planting (follow the planting table displayed in each variety) make sure you store these in a cool, dry place, with no direct sunlight, until it is time to plant.

It’s good practice, especially with First earlies and maincrop, to ‘chit’ the seed potatoes before planting out. A few empty egg boxes are the perfect way to do this. Stand them rose end up where the most dents in the skin are and pop them in a frost-free place with direct sunlight to allow the shoots to start growing.  When these reach about 3cm (1ins) they are ready to plant. Find the strongest chits on the potato – around three or four and rub the rest off before planting.
