Maincrop Seed Potatoes

Maincrop seed potatoes produce tubers that you can do so much with: mash; chip; boil; steam; roast or bake.

Maincrop seed potatoes are planted between March and early May, ready for harvesting between the end of August and October. They need to be planted at a depth of 10cm with 30 to 40cm between each potato. There needs to be at least 70 to 75 cm between each row to give the seed potatoes enough space to grow.

Open flowers (if present) will indicate when the first tubers are present. This should take around 14 weeks after planting. The potatoes should then be left for 2 to 3 weeks to allow the skin to harden so that they are able to store better.
