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

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 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.
