Maincrop potato varieties produce larger varieties for baking and roasting. For best results, 'chit' the tubers and then plant up from March to mid May. The potatoes will be ready to harvest approximately 20 weeks after planting. Maincrop potatoes are best grown in the ground, where they will have more space. 'Sarpo' potatoes offer exceptional resistance to blight, a common problem in potatoes.
Bred from ‘Cara’, this early maincrop variety has the same creamy skin and striking bright red eyes. Potato ‘Picasso’ produces huge yields of waxy fleshed tubers with good all round disease and drought resistance, although may be prone to slugs. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
