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 'Saxon' - Part of the Alan Romans Collection

Solanum tuberosum

 

Second early.

After hearing me decry modern varieties for lack of flavour, one of the promoters insisted I tried 'Saxon'. It is very pleasant and creamy. I ate my words (as well!). It is an attractive, high yielding, disease resistant, general purpose variety from PBI (now Cygnet PB). To avoid gaps, 'Saxon' needs to be planted in mild conditions. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Potato 'Wilja' - Part of the Alan Romans Collection

Solanum tuberosum

 

Second early.

In the 1970s 'Wilja' along with 'Estima' changed all the rules about growing second earlies. High yields, good appearance, good boiling qualities and easily managed foliage proved to be more important than disease resistance, white flesh and floury flavour.
