350020 Price:  £7.99

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.

Here is an idea for the planting and harvesting times for our different seed potato varieties;

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. 

For more growing information please see our How To Grow Potatoes.
