Unfortunately this year Potato ‘Harlequin’ is not available due to it failing to meet Scottish seed certification requirements and will not be allowed for sale as seed this year. We have chosen an exciting salad variety called ‘Pippa’ as a replacement in this collection. It has been selected because it is almost identical to ‘Harlequin’ having been bred from very similar parentage (‘Pink Fir Apple’) and delivers many of the same features such as the attractive pink blush colouring and cream waxy flesh.
