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 'Chicago'

Solanum tuberosum

 Customer Rating

Early maincrop.

A popular variety within the potato crisp industry for its dry texture and flavoursome flesh. Potato 'Chicago' is equally useful in the kitchen as a general purpose potato for roasting, chipping, mashing and wonderfully fluffy baked potatoes. Tubers also have good storage potential due to their long-term sugar stability. This versatile British bred early maincrop has performed well in trials, showing Golden eelworm resistance and partial White eelworm resistance, as well as heat and drought tolerance. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Potato 'Pentland Crown' - Part of the Alan Romans Collection

Solanum tuberosum

Early maincrop.

'Crown' was the first Pentland variety (from Pentlandfield Station, Edinburgh) to have an impact - the varieties came out in alphabetical order. It displaced 'Majestic' as the most common variety in the UK. 'Crown' is robust, drought resistant, disease resistant and very productive - it even produces long stolons to fill adjacent gaps in the row. It was the first variety to be banned from a supermarket chain for lack of flavour- opinions vary in the 'Majestic' tradition. Nowadays seed is only grown for gardeners.
