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.
Introduced exclusively by T&M, Potato ‘Druid’ is very similar to ‘Red Cara’ but with a slightly later maturity. Producing huge yields of short, oval, pinky red skinned tubers with shallow eyes and firm flesh that wont disintegrate on cooking. With good resistance to foliage blight, common scab and golden eelworm this late maincrop variety is ideal for the organic gardener. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
Please note: Potato ‘Druid’ CANNOT be sent to Northern Ireland or Eire.
