'Kestrel' is a favourite second early variety. Extremely productive, with harvests of up to 35-40 or more tubers from each plant. They have good resistance to eelworm and slugs.
These potatoes have a long oval shape with white skins and purple eyes and the tender white flesh tastes divine and perfect for roasting and chipping.
Once the seed potatoes have produced shoots or chits, they will be ready to plant directly into a prepared bed or large bags or containers from mid-March, preferably after the frosts have gone. Young potatoes can be harvested from 13-17 weeks after planting.
Supplied as a 2.5kg bag of seed potatoes (approx. 30-35 tubers) ready to prepare indoors for planting out in the spring.
