Picasso has so many qualities – from having fantastic disease resistance (making them a firm favourite for allotment growers), to their round/oval shape making them one of the best varieties for the jacket potato! These are a high yielder and having Cara as one of its parents makes it just a great all-rounder. They have smooth white skin with pink eyes and they are great for storing through the winter months.
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.
