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 'Setanta'

Solanum tuberosum

Maincrop

Voted the best roasting potato in T&M trials! Setanta triumphed over its 6 competitors with its attractive, golden crisp skins and melt-in-the-mouth buttery flesh. Boasting as one of its parent lines, 'Rooster', which Setanta unanimously out scored in T&M's blind tasting. Setanta is of late maincrop maturity, producing a high yield of medium-sized, shallow-eyed, oval red-skinned tubers with medium yellow flesh. Tubers have very high dry matter, making them superb for eating in a variety of ways - roasted, baked and chipped. With its impressive yields, low chemical and water requirements and its pest and disease-free reputation, Setanta is the perfect choice for the home and organic gardener.

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

Potato 'Carolus'

Solanum tuberosum

Early Maincrop.

Smooth-skinned pale yellow tubers with attractive shallow red eyes and pale yellow flesh. Carolus combines a slightly floury texture with excellent flavour. At our Capel Manor potato trials in September 2014, Carolus was voted No.1 as both a baker and chipper in taste tests, but we've roasted, boiled and mashed them in our own tests at home with superb results. The growing test produced a bumper crop of uniformly sized oval tubers with no signs of blight or rotting from a late September harvest. New to the amateur market, it has already performed exceptionally and was awarded an RHS AGM at the off site Capel Manor trials in September 2014.
