Variety of heritage seed potatoes first added to the national variety list in 1954.

Foremost seed potatoes (originally called Suttons Foremost) are a variety of heritage seed potatoes first added to the national variety list in 1954. Although Foremost were an instant hit with gardeners who liked it's excellent flavour and resistance to disintegration when boiling, it's average sized yields and disease resistance meant it never really took off commercially.

That said, it does have good common scab resistance.

Foremost potatoes are short to oval in shape with white skin and waxy white flesh. Bake them, boil them or throw them in a salad.

First earlies are typically ready for harvesting around 13-15 weeks from planting.

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.
