JBA Seed Potatoes Kondor Seed Potatoes
Kondor hold the world record for producing the heaviest potato ever recorded.
JBA seed potatoes are pleased to announce that we have a limited quantity of the world record holding heaviest potato variety Kondor available. The heaviest potato weighs 4.98 kg (10 lb 14 oz) and was grown by Peter Glazebrook (UK). It was weighed at the National Gardening Show at the Royal Bath West Showground in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, UK, on 4 September 2011.
By purchasing these tubers you are agreeing that you will only grow them and multiply them for your own personal use and will not sell any future crops of this variety as seed or any other growable product. These seed potatoes will prove to be a great stock for the future and should allow you to retain your own planting stock for years to come as long as they are kept disease free.
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.
Grown from cultivated stock.
