Acoustic is a great all-round variety with a strong resistance to blight. A second-early potato that produces high yields of round, pale skinned, creamy fleshed and tasty tubers with a waxy texture; perfect for salads and boiling.
You can leave them to mature and lift them later in the season where they will become more floury in texture making them great for chips, baking, mashing and roasting.
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.
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.
Water well in dry spells.
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.
