Markies potato. Needs a short description here



Markies Seed Potatoes are oval shaped tubers, with cream skin. They are high yielding and have excellent all round resistance to disease, particularly potato virus Y and potato virus X

They have excellent cooking and frying qualities.


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



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.
