Jamieson Brothers® Arran Pilot - 10 tuber pack
Arran Pilot is the nation’s favourite garden-grown variety. Arran Pilot has been around since 1930 and has remained popular due to its excellent taste and early boiling ability. Pilot produces high yields of white skinned tubers with shallow eyes. The flesh is pure white and is among the best boilers available.
Great resistance to all forms of scab and scores a high 9 for spraing resistance.
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 25cm from the next, with rows spaced 60cm apart. Always make sure the eyes are facing upwards. Drills should be 15cm deep.
Water well in dry spells.
Harvest May-June. 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.
