Overview

Organic Cara

 

Cara seed potatoes are still one of the most popular maincrop varieties due to their excellent resistance to blight. Cara tubers are round with white skin and pink eyes. A robust seed potato variety with excellent drought resistance and good all round disease resistance. Best suited to baking, boiling, chipping and roasting.


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

 

Organically grown in Scotland these potatoes are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizer, chemical weed control, or synthetic pesticides. Perfect for you to continue their organic growing journey.

 
 
 

 

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 25cm from the next, with rows spaced 60cm apart. Always make sure the eyes are facing upwards. Drills should be 15cm deep.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Water well in dry spells.

HARVESTING INSTRUCTIONS:

Harvest June-July. 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.
