Swift seed potatoes are the earliest of earlies, with crops being harvested in as little as 60 days.

A high yielding variety that produces a round-to-oval shaped white tuber with creamy flesh and shallow eyes, this seed potato is a real all-rounder in the kitchen. Swift has been bred for early use in the north of Scotland, so you can be assured this is a hardy variety.

Great disease resistance to blackleg, common scab, powdery scab and eelworm, Swift is an ideal variety to grow in containers for early use.

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