Potato 'British Queen'

Solanum tuberosum

 Customer Rating

Second early.

This RHS AGM variety is over 100 years old and still highly prized for its yield, shape, floury texture and delicious flavour. Today, Potato 'British Queen' is Ireland's favourite summer crop. The oval, white skinned, floury-fleshed tubers make excellent general purpose potatoes and are particularly good for roasting. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

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").

Potato 'Athlete'

Solanum tuberosum

Enjoy high yields of pale yellow tubers which won't disintegrate on boiling and maintain their superb taste whether eaten hot or cold. This second early potato also shows good resistance to golden eelworm and blackleg. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
