Record seed potatoes produce tubers that are popular for making chips and crisps due to their high dry matter (great for frying). They can be very dry and mealy after boiling and retain their yellow coloured flesh.
Record potatoes have good all-round potato disease resistance and are great for all-round kitchen use.
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.
