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 '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.

Potato 'Markies' (Early Maincrop)

Solanum tuberosum

  • Best for chips
We introduced Potato Markies in 2007 due to its vigorous, upright habit, excellent late blight resistance, high yields and quality, tasty tubers. We are pleased to have secured this top performing early maincrop variety again for the 2016 season. It performed so well in our recent Capel Manor College growing trials and taste tests, we just had to bring it back. Our taste testers rated it best of the bunch for chipping and baking, commending the fluffy texture, crispy skins and golden crunch when chipped. Potato Markies produces long oval tubers with pale yellow flesh and skin. A floury cooking texture and a high dry matter content results in less oil absorption when fried. The flesh has a low sugar content and a very low acrylamide content, making it a healthy potato option. Growers of this easy grow potato report full resistance to golden eelworm. Height:60cm (24"). Spread 60cm (24").
