These potatoes have an RHS award of garden merit and we can see why. Originally known as ‘Suttons Foremost’ these are a heritage potato added to the national variety in the 1950’s. These have excellent flavour and resistance to disintegrating while boiling. They are a great ‘new potato’ because of their short oval shape. They have white skin, with a white waxy flesh and if stored correctly will keep for months to enjoy throughout the summer. Foremost are great for salads and baking and have an average resistance to scab. 

First early seed potatoes have the shortest maturing time from as little as 60 – 110 days. 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 packs contain between 20 to 25 tubers graded 35 to 60 mm.

Here is an idea for the planting and harvesting times for our seed potato 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. 

For more growing information please see our How To Grow Potatoes
