Duke of York
Duke of York seed potatoes are an old heritage potato variety, first entered on the national list back in 1891. Since their introduction, Duke of York have become famous for their great taste and all-round culinary ability.
These seed potatoes are oval shaped with yellow flesh. Once they are boiled, Duke of Yorks are dry and mealy, making them an ideal variety to boil straight from your garden. They also show good resistance to dry rot.
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.
