Maincrop


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.

Potato 'Manitou'

Solanum tuberosum

Early maincrop.

Manitou has a firmer flesh than popular Desirée, with good dry matter content suitable for baking, chipping, roasting and making lovely smooth mash. Manitou shows good spraing resistance and is golden eelworm resistant too - a boon if you've been troubled by this pest in the past.

Potato 'Arran Victory' (organic) - Part of the Alan Romans Collection

Solanum tuberosum

Late maincrop.

This is the oldest 'Arran' still available. It is high yielding given a long growing season. The vivid blue/ purple skin contrasts with the bright white flesh. It is floury, very tasty and makes wonderful mash. The foliage is vigorous and weed suppressing.
