Charlotte Potato - Late Season 2kg Pack - Seed Potatoes
Charlotte Potato – Late Season 2kg Pack – Seed Potatoes £8.95
Charlotte is a best selling salad potato, with an Award of Garden Merit from The RHS. It will produce gorgeous waxy potatoes that are best cooked straight after digging them out of the garden.If blight and scab have caused you problems in past years then Charlotte will withstand most diseases and still produce a crop. Charlotte is the classic salad potato and the one against which others are judged! Skin Colour – Yellow. Flesh Colour – Yellow. Uses – new, boil, steam, mash and saute.Late season (second crop) potatoes are grown from tubers which have been stored at a precise low temperature to keep them dormant until they are sent to you in July/early August. Plant them straight away (no need to ‘chit’ first) and they will grow away rapidly in the warm summer soil.Your first potatoes can be dug from late October, but remember to leave some in the ground undisturbed, so you can enjoy that mouth-watering, just harvested, ‘new potato’ taste on Christmas Day!. 2kg Pack. Full growing instructions included.. . . .
