Potatoes from D.T.Brown Arrive


 New! Mayan Rose - Main Crop - D.T.Brown 

A new variety and an offspring between the well know Phurejas varieties, Mayan Twilight and Mayan Gold.

All Phureja's potatoes have an excellent flavour and cook in a third less time than standard varieties - flavour and economy! The yield may not be the best, but the taste more than compensates and we certainly recommend you give them a try! Originating from the Andean valleys in South America, Phurejas potatoes benefit from a longer growing period than other varieties, ideally planted in warm soil at the end of March and harvested in September. Mayan Rose has a striking and unique coloured skin, cooking quickly when boiled and also ideal for mashing, roasting and wedges. Good disease resistance in particular to blight, potato cyst nematode and splitting.

Potatoes are one of the most rewarding vegetables to grow. There’s the nurturing process of chitting, planting and earthing-up, the anticipation of a good harvest as you dig through the soil and, of course, the unbeatable taste of fresh, home-grown, potatoes.

Potatoes are delivered in 1.5kg bags, each pack containing approx. 15-20 tubers.



New! Sarpo Kifli - Main Crop - D.T.Brown

Most Sarpo varieties are maincrop varieties, but Kifli is different – it produces delicious, creamy fleshed and waxy salad potatoes which have that wonderful ‘new’ potato flavour -perfect for boiling and enjoying hot or cold. What’s more, it will crop all summer long, is high yielding and can be kept until the following spring, if kept in a cool, dark and frost free place. Superb late blight resistance and ideal for container growing.

The Sarpo varieties have all been bred and developed for their great taste and unique blight resistance. Whether for the veg garden at home or larger scale plantings in the allotment, we know you’ll enjoy harvesting these delicious, freshly dug spuds.
