Seed Potato Maris Bard (First early) 2.5kg


SKU: 350073 Category:


Introduced in the 1970s, 'Maris Bard' is an established favourite of the British kitchen – a traditional salad variety with a superb taste and texture. It can be planted from February to April and ready to harvest as 'new' potatoes from about 10 weeks after planting. Easy to grow, it is a reliable early cropper with good resistance to drought, pests and diseases – just some of the reasons this super variety has earned its RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Fast growing, 'Maris Bard' will produce plentiful crops of consistent size and quality, with a good oval shape and blemish-free, smooth, yellow-white skin with shallow eyes, and white flesh that remains firm during cooking. Its waxy texture is what makes it such a good choice for potato salad – but it also has a soft creaminess that means it is great for boiling, mashing or frying.
Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered position, or in large containers or growbags. Water well in dry conditions for optimum cropping. 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.
Supplied as a 2.5kg pack of seed potatoes ready to prepare indoors for planting out from February to April. Early plantings will benefit from frost protection.
