Seed Potatoes

First early seed potatoes mature in 60 to 110 days, these potatoes have the shortest maturing time.  If planting out early at the end of march lifting can typically take place between late June or early July.  These potatoes can be planted from mid March if weather conditions are favourable.

First early variety tend to have lower yields than second early or maincrop potatoes. They usually have smaller tubers, take up less space and escape more diseases such as blight.

First earlies often enjoyed as new potatoes are best eaten as soon as they are harvested.

As a general rule 2Kg packs contain 20 to 25 tubers graded at 35 to 60mm.

Second early seed potatoes take longer than first earlies and mature between 110 to 120 days.  When planted in mid to late April you can expect to harvest from early to mid August. These potatoes can be planted from mid March if weather conditions are favourable.

Second earlies are similar to first earlies due to lower yields than maincrop potatoes and at there best when first harvested.  Again like first earlies, second early seed potato varieties need less space and can escape diseases like blight.

As a general rule 2Kg packs contain 20 to 25 tubers graded at 35 to 60mm.

Maincrop seed potatoes mature between 125 to 140 days.  When planted in late April you can expect to harvest from mid August through to October.Maincrop potatoes can be planted from mid March if weather conditions are favourable.

Maincrop potatoes are higher yielding than both first & second earlies with larger tubers and as well as being eaten fresh from harvest can be stored and used over the following winter months.

As a general rule 2Kg packs contain 20 to 25 tubers graded at 35 to 60mm.
