Sarpo Mira seed potatoes are the most blight resistant potato variety available in the UK and certainly when I grew them in my garden for the first time this year, they didn't require spraying for blight. The haulms were infected with blight but they have still produced blight free tubers on the 12th of October. Very impressive.
Sarpo Mira tubers have a dry, floury texture which are best suited to roasting and chipping. I would also use them as a baking potato and pop them in the microwave for a quick meal.
They seem to be free of any slug damage and only show small signs of common scab on the skin.
Maincrop seed potatoes mature in 125-140 days and, if planted in late April, can be harvested by mid August.
Red skin with white flesh. Long oval in shape. Floury in texture. Heavy cropper. Stores well. Thrives in any soil. Good for baking and general use. Slug and blight resistant.
