Heritage potato variety dating back to 1942, said to be found in amongst a crop of white dukes in Holland.

Red Duke of York seed potatoes are a heritage potato variety dating back to 1942, said to be found in amongst a crop of white dukes in Holland. These first early seed potatoes produce red skinned tubers with shallow eyes and yellow flesh.

Red Dukes are a dry, mealy potato packed with flavour and do not disintegrate on boiling.

Without doubt one of my own personal favourite varieties on sale at JBA, many major supermarkets and retailers are now stocking Red Duke of York as their 'Best of the best/Finest' range.

First earlies are typically ready for harvesting around 13-15 weeks from planting.

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.
