Nicola potatoes will give you lovely long oval shaped tubers with wavy yellow skins, great for boiling for salads, as well as chipping and mashing. They have a great disease resistance from potato cyst nematode, common scab, potato leaf roll virus, potato virus Y and bruising. Although this are second early potatoes these are a popular variety for planting later and harvesting just in time for christmas.
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.
