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 'International Kidney'
Solanum tuberosumCustomer Rating
A heritage variety that has stood the test of time. A Victorian selection of Potato ‘International Kidney’ is still grown on Jersey and marketed under the trademark 'Jersey Royal'. If harvested as a second early, ‘International Kidney’ makes a perfect, very waxy, salad potato. Harvested later as an early maincrop, it produces floury, large, general purpose tubers. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
