Potato Desiree

Desiree is one of our most popular maincrop potato's, they produce oval red skinned tubers, with pale yellow flesh. Heavy cropper and will bulk up early. 

High resistance to drought and a good resistance to potato virus Y and powdery scab.

The tubers are great for boiling, fresh chips and for mashing.

Potato's benefit from being chitted before planting in March-April. Store in a cool light spot before planting. Cultivate soils as deep as possible and add plenty of well rotted manure. Potatos are best grown in rows, so dig a trench 20cms deep and 10cms wide and plant the tubers in the bottom every 20cms.and cover over. As the potato's start to grow cover the emerging shoots with soil until a ridge of soil about 30cms high has been attained and then leave the foliage to grow above the ridge.

Tip: Keep well watered during the growing period.

Aspect: Full sun to semi shade.

Soil type: Soils that are not to heavy and if possible have been well manured.

Planting time: March-April
Harvest: June-Onwards
