Potato 'Nicola' - Part of the Alan Romans Collection

Solanum tuberosum

Second early.

Close grown 'Nicola', 'Charlotte' and 'Maris Peer' have become popular in recent decades to supply the demand for small, firm, waxy salad/ boiling potatoes with flavour. 'Nicola' is yellow fleshed, eelworm resistant and grows long if given space. It used to be blight resistant but recent strains have changed this. Many new varieties are 'designed' for Nicola's niche but usually lack the flavour. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
