Our 'Brookside' collection pack includes some of the more popular varieties which will give you potatoes all season. We have chosen them for their disease resistance, high yields, type and use. The collection includes –
Arran Pilot | First Early – One of the nation’s favourite home-grown potatoes and we can see why – they have a great resistance to all forms of scab and scores a high 9 for spraing resistance.
Charlotte | Second Early - Charlotte potatoes are the most popular variety used for salad potatoes in the UK. This is because of their long shape with firm/waxy flesh and obviously their taste!
Desiree | Maincrop - Desiree is the potato celebrities cannot get enough of for the perfect roast potato! They produce oval red skinned tubers with pale yellow flesh, not only do they make the perfect roasts, but they are extremely versatile – you literally can do anything with this potato.
Your potatoes will arrive in a free hessian bag.
You will receive one 2kg bag of each variety. Our 2kg packs contain between 20 to 25 tubers graded 35 to 60 mm each.
Here is an idea for the planting and harvesting times for the different varieties -
If you have ordered plug plants for dispatch in March or April, we will send your seed potatoes during the same week. If you require these earlier please make a seperate order for these items.
