Desiree Seed Potatoes | Maincrop 2kg bag

Desiree is the potato celebrities can not 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 – boiling, mashing, baking, chipping and roasting. These potatoes are a heavy cropper and early bulking with a high resistance to drought and good resistance to potato virus Y and powdery scab. Please note they have been known to have a slight susceptibility to spraing.

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.
