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 different seed potato varieties;

See the tabs above or click these links for information on: Delivery and Advice

Brand:  Brookside Nursery
Eating Texture:  Floury
Culinary Uses:  Boiling - Mashing - Baking- Chipping - Roasting
Botanical name:  Solanum tuberosum

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) these 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.

Our seed potatoes are available for dispatch during the months of March and April . If you have also ordered plug plants for dispatch in March or April, we will send your seed potatoes during the same week. Smaller orders are dispatched via Royal Mail 24 , larger orders via Parcelforce 24

If you have ordered seed potatoes only (or other non-plug plant varieties), we will dispatch your order during week commencing 16th March 2020 or if you order after this date we will dispatch within 3-4 working days of ordering - these are sent via Royal Mail 48 or Parcelforce 48.
