More Details

Potato 'Winston' is an early potato that quickly produces delicious potatoes of a good large baking size. I grow this for my summer bakers, chips or mash. Its quick growth makes one think it won't taste good, but it tastes superb and is hugely prolific.

Genus Solanum tuberosum
Variety Winston
Group First Early
Type Root crop
Common Name Potato
Soil Type Acid, Alkaline, Chalky, Clay, Fertile, Neutral, Sandy

I was surprised and delighted at the size and the amount of the potatoes. Will be buying again next year.
