Red Duke of York Seed Potatoes (First Early)

(10 Tubers)

Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery in Feb/Mar. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in early spring approx 10cm apart in pots, containers, raised beds and any traditional veg patches. Make sure the soil/compost has good drainage.

When to harvest: When the leaves start to turn yellow you can check to see if they are ready to harvest. You may be able to tell if they are ready from the crown of the bulb peeping above the surface of the soil. If not, carefully dig one or two up to have a look with a hand fork.

*Transplants suitable for organic growing.

A great all rounder
This heritage variety dates back to 1942. It produces red, thick skinned tubers with soft fluffy yellow flesh. They are a good option for gardens that tend to get hit by blight, as they are usually ready to harvest in June/July (like most first earlies) and provide an early crop of potatoes that are good for mashing and roasting alongside all the lovely salad potatoes.

Number of tubers (seed potatoes): 10

Variety: Red Duke of York

In the kitchen: These can be roasted, mashed, baked or used for making chips.

Delivery: We start shipping seed potatoes in February
