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 'Orla'

Solanum tuberosum

 Customer Rating

First early.

Potato 'Orla' has outstanding foliage and tuber blight resistance, producing creamy skinned, pale yellow fleshed, round-oval tubers. This first early variety can also be grown as a second early and early maincrop from slightly later plantings, as tubers will bulk up well. Height and spread: 60cm (24").


Please note: Potato 'Orla' CANNOT be sent to Northern Ireland or Eire.
