Description

Possibly the earliest new potato you can grow, these have a good taste and texture, best if cooked and eaten very soon after harvesting. Good heavy croppers.

Care Tips

Plant in ground that has had lots of compost or manure added to it. When the shoots first appear draw the earth from between the rows to cover them. This protects them from frost and encourages underground shoots and more tubers.
