Potato 'Orchestra' (Second Early)

Solanum tuberosum

  • Stands out from the crowd
  • Best for baking
Potato Orchestra stood out from the crowd in our in house tastes tests, not only proving to be an excellent early cropping baking potato, but impressing our taste panel as a versatile general purpose potato for boiling, mashing, chipping and roasting. The bold, white-skinned uniform tubers from this heavy yielder produce an attractive pale yellow flesh. In field trials Potato Orchestra has shown good resistance to golden eelworm and remained free of common potato scab and spraing. Height: 60cm (24"). 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 'Nadine' (Exhibitor)

Solanum tuberosum

Second early.

Potato 'Nadine' produces exceptionally smooth skinned, rounded tubers with shallow eyes. The creamy flesh has a firm, moist, waxy texture and does not discolour on cooking, making this a useful general purpose potato. This second early variety has double eelworm resistance and high common scab tolerance, and looks superb on the show bench. Height and spread: 60cm (24").


For growing unmarked exhibition quality tubers we recommend using our Exhibitor Growing Bags.

Potato 'Gemson'

Solanum tuberosum

  • Super-tasting Maris Peer cross

Second early.

With 'Maris Peer' in its parentage, this potato has outstanding flavour. Producing high yields of small, round-oval tubers, Potato 'Gemson' performed particularly well in our trials, growing equally as well in patio bags as it did in the ground. Boasting smooth white skin and firm cream flesh, this second early potato is delicious steamed or boiled and eaten as a new potato or served with salads, either hot or cold. This exceptional new variety shows good resistance to powdery scab and blackleg. Height and spread: 60cm (24").
