Potato 'Pink Fir Apple' is a late-maturing salad potato for harvesting in the autumn. It's a favourite with chefs as it has an excellent flavour and texture. You may need to spray to avoid blight, so tricky for the organic gardener but really superb this year.

It loved the dry June and July, wet August and then Indian summer of September and October. We were eating our great crop of these until Christmas.
