Potatoes can succumb to devastating diseases such as blight, common scab and potato eelworm. Potato minitubers are micro-propagated in sterile conditions and offer gardeners completely disease-free potato tubers. They will produce normal sized potato tubers once planted. Using this new technology allows us to store heritage varieties long-term and quickly introduce new and old varieties.
Potato Minituber 'Congo'

Bred before 1895, these cylindrical potatoes have many eyes and very dark purple-blue skins. The flesh of this maincrop variety is blue, intensifying in colour on maturity. Potato ‘Congo’ makes stunning blue chips, or use larger tubers for roasting. A fantastic novelty variety to add colour to any dish! 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.
