First early seed potato released in 1992.

Winston seed potatoes, another Jack Dunnett variety, have proved to be both a commercial and an exhibition success all in one. Released in 1992, this white skinned variety has been unstoppable on the showbench circuit winning many titles year after year.

Winston produces high yields of smooth, shallow eyed, tubers that are short to oval in shape. Their flesh has a firm texture and a creamy colour, whilst their very low, dry matter would see Winston described as a wet potato.

These seed potatoes also have excellent all round disease resistance.

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