First Early


First early potatoes are perfect if you want to grow small, new potatoes and should be planted from the end of February to late May. They'll be ready to harvest in about 10 weeks from the planting date. It's a good idea to 'chit' these varieties before planting - this produces long shoots from which the plants will grow. First early potatoes are ideal for growing in potato patio planters or containers.

Potato 'Accord' - Part of the Alan Romans Collection

Solanum tuberosum

First early

'Accord' is fairly high yielding, disease resistant and general purpose. It is double eelworm resistant. Tuber blight resistance is higher than foliar. This is a useful variety for the gardener and a personal favourite but it is sometimes difficult to find. Some seed is grown in Scotland which tends to suggest that it is not particularly prone to the soft rots that preclude other earlies from the Continent being grown in the wetter, colder climate of the north.
