Wilja is such a versatile potato, from boiling to mashing, chipping and roasting – its one of our favourites for an early great all-rounder! They produce large crops of light yellow skinned potatoes and have a great scab resistance.
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 packs contain between 20 to 25 tubers graded 35 to 60 mm.
Here is an idea for the planting and harvesting times for our second early variety’s
|Planting ||Harvesting |
|Early February to March ||Early June* |
|Normal April ||Normal July to August |
* remember harvesting early could lead to smaller potatoes and low yields
