Casablanca seed potatoes are a new, white skinned first early potato, with the potential to beat Winston on the showbench. A clean, smooth white, with shallow eyes, the Casablanca is an exhibitors delight with great cooking ability. Chip, bake, boil, mash or roast it, it really is a chef's dream.
Edible size crops can be achieved in 62 days from planting.
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 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.
