Description

Maincrop.

Tuck into your own home-grown, deliciously fluffy roast potatoes and buttery mash, and eat a piece of history with this heritage variety! Dating from 1918, ‘Arran Victory’ was bred on the Isle of Arran to celebrate the ending of the First World War. Its spectacular, indigo skin is a distinctive feature, and although this fades on cooking, it more than compensates with its excellent flavour. This is certainly not a bland, modern variety. The snowy white flesh has an old-fashioned earthy flavour and due to the high dry matter content, it’s wonderfully floury too. As a result, it’s a variety which makes especially good chips, roast spuds and mash. Just make sure you boil or steam these delicious spuds gently, as if left too long they will break up.

This maincrop produces good yields on relatively tall plants which are best given a little shelter in windy areas. Crops are ready to harvest in early August. They store well – save some for Remembrance Sunday dinner!

Height and spread: 60cm (24").

How to Grow

Plant maincrop potatoes from March. Prior to planting, 'chit' the seed potatoes by setting them out in a cool, bright position (10C/ 50F) to allow them to sprout.

When growing maincrop potatoes in the ground avoid planting in soil where potatoes have grown for two years in succession to reduce the risk of disease. Prepare the planting area in a sheltered position in full sun on moist well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure. Plant potatoes in rows at a spacing of 45cm (18"). Rows should be set out 75cm (2', 6") apart. Place the seed potatoes into 10cm (4") deep trenches and backfill the soil to refill the trenches. When shoots reach 20cm (8"), mound up soil around the shoots leaving just a few cm showing. Repeat this process after a further 3 weeks.

Where space is limited, try growing potatoes in potato bags on the patio. Fill an 8 litre potato bag to just below the top of the bag with good quality compost mixed with some well rotted manure. Carefully plunge a single chitted potato tuber into the compost with the shoots pointing upwards at a depth of 12cm (5") from the soil surface. Place the bags in a sunny position and water regularly to keep the compost moist.

More Info

Weed between rows and keep potato plants well watered throughout the growing season. If the risk of frost threatens, draw some soil up around the stems to protect them, or move potato bags to a frost free position in a shed or greenhouse. Maincrop varieties can be harvested approximately 20 weeks from planting when the foliage begins to turn yellow and die back.
