'Casablanca' is a fairly new variety of first early potatoes, which can be planted from February to April and ready to harvest as 'new' potatoes from 9-14 weeks after planting. Easy to grow, this variety has good resistance to disease (including common scab, blackleg and golden eelworm) and produces lots of tasty, small potatoes that have smooth, white skins, shallow eyes and delicious creamy flesh.
A good all-rounder, its floury texture is ideal for roasting, boiling and baking – and it makes superb chips! It is fast becoming a household favourite – as well as being popular amongst chefs for its cooking ability and versatility. With evenly formed, attractive crops, it is also a top choice amongst competitive growers who want to produce the perfect specimen for the showing bench. Receiving consistently high reviews, it is easy to see why this variety has already been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
These potatoes are best used fresh from the garden but will keep well for up to 5 days in a cool, dark and dry place. Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in a sunny or semi-shaded, sheltered position, or in large containers or growbags. Water well in dry conditions for optimum cropping.
Supplied as a 2.5kg bag of seed potatoes ready to prepare indoors for planting out from February to April. Early plantings will benefit from frost protection.
