A very well-known potato variety which is a great starter potato if you are new to growing! They are known for their high yields and great cooking abilities, which is no wonder as they are the number one spud used in chip shops in the UK. They are oval in shape with white skins and cream coloured flesh – they are a great potato for storing too.
Maincrop seed potatoes take the longest to mature of between 125 – 140 days, however, they are known for their higher yielding than the first and second earlies, not only that they are great for storing and using over the winter months.
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 maincrop varieties
|Planting ||Harvesting |
|Early February to March ||Early August* |
