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! Their cooking qualities are excellent making them great for boiling and mashing, and as a salad potato delicious hot or cold – no wonder this has an RHS award of garden merit!
Second early potatoes take a little longer to mature than the first earlies at 110 – 120 days. Like first earlies these are often enjoyed as new potatoes because of their thin skins and most varieties are best eaten as soon as they are harvested.
Our 2kg pack contains between 20 to 25 tubers graded 35 to 60 mm.
Here is an idea for the planting and harvesting times for our second early variety’s
