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.

Early maincrop.

Yellow skinned, long, oval, tubers with a deep golden flesh, a unique nutty flavour, and an extremely creamy, yet dry texture. This exclusive early maincrop Potato 'Mayan Gold' has proven exceptionally popular with chefs and the restaurant trade. Fantastic for chips and roast potatoes with a crispy texture and fluffy centres. Superb flavour when cooked in its skin, and for all cooking uses except boiling, as tubers tend to disintergrate.

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.
