Pentland Javelin seed potatoes are considered one of the finest first earlies that you can grow.

Overview

Pentland Javelin

 

Pentland Javelin were bred by a young Jack Dunnett back in 1968. For years they have been considered to be one of the finest first earlies that you can grow.

Javelin produces heavy crops of short oval white skinned tubers with pure white tasty flesh. A great potato to put into the pan and boil and use for salads.

Pentland Javelin also has good all-round disease resistance to common scab and blackleg.

 

 

SOIL PREPARATION:

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.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS:

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.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

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.

Grown from cultivated stock.
