Desiree seed potatoes produce oval, red skinned tubers with pale yellow flesh. Medium dry matter, firm cooked texture, good boiling, fresh French Fry & mashing quality.

 

Maincrop seed potatoes mature in 125-140 days and, if planted in late April, can be harvested by mid August.

 

Desiree is a heavy cropper and early bulking potato. It produces oval red skinned tubers with pale yellow flesh. Medium dry flesh, firm cooked texture makes this potato excellent for boiling, frying and mashing. High resistance to drought and a good resistance to potato virus Y and powdery scab.

 

SOIL PREPARATION

 

Choose a place in the garden which has not been used to grow garlic, onions, shallots or leeks for at least two years. The soil should be open, well drained and not have been manured for at least one year.

 

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS

 

Each potato should be 35cm from the next, with rows spaced 70cm apart. Always make sure the eyes are facing upwards. Drills should be 15cm deep.

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

Water well in dry spells.

 

HARVESTING INSTRUCTIONS

 

Harvest October-December. Dig up mature potatoes and store them in a cool, dry and dark location. Potatoes can be stored for several months. Tip: when harvesting, remove all foliage and small potatoes from the soil and discard, to avoid diseases on next year’s crop.

 

Plant as soon as possible after purchase. Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place until planting. Keep free from frost.

 

Grown from cultivated stock.
