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 Minituber 'Vitelotte'

Solanum tuberosum, Potato 'Negresse', Potato 'Truffe de Chine'

Maincrop.

Potato 'Vitelotte' is our own registered clone of this old French variety that probably originated in the early 1800s from Peru or Bolivia. With the same rich inky purple-black skin and flesh as 'Congo', but earlier maturing and with slightly larger tubers. This heritage maincrop variety has a nutty flavour and retains its colour most prominently if steamed in minimal water and not boiled.Visually stunning for mash, chips, crisps, jackets and roast potatoes. Height and spread: 60cm (24").


These minitubers are micro-propagated in sterile conditions under stringent quality assurance controls to produce completely disease-free potato tubers. Once planted they will grow vigorously and produce good crops of normal sized tubers. This new technology provides secure long term storage of heritage varieties and allows rapid introduction of varieties, old and new.
