All Sarpo potatoes have been bred and developed for their great taste and unquie blight resistances. This great value collection consists of a 1.5kg pack each of the following varieties:

Sarpo Mira: Bred in Hungary, if blight is a problem in your garden this could be the answer to your prayers! Add to that its drought-resistance and the fact slugs don’t seem to like the pink-skinned tubers and you have rather remarkable spud, which is also a good keeper. Sarpo Mira has floury flesh and is a great all-round choice, being especially suitable for roasting, baking and chipping.

Sarpo Blue Danube: Known as the ‘Blue’ Sarpo, this variety is famed for its excellent resistance to the late blight of potato tubers and also its good, general disease resistance. Quoted as the best roast potato ever, Blue Danube has a high dry matter content, so is perfect for roasting, chipping and baking. Because of its inbuilt dormancy it can be harvested in autumn and then kept in a cool, dark and frost free place right though until spring without sprouting or softening.

Sarpo Axona: A sister to the hugely successful Sarpo Mira (introduced in 2005), Axona has attractive pink skin and creamy white flesh and is known for its outstanding blight resistance. As it grows, the tubers fill out to produce heavy yields of large, regular shaped tubers which are really tasty – suitable for all culinary uses, but really good for ‘jackets’.

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.

All potatoes (except for maincrops) will benefit from ‘chitting’ prior to planting out. The chitting process encourages the seed to sprout, which then when planted, helps them to establish more readily, leading to bigger crops. Simply place them, blunt end up, in an old egg box until the shoots are approximately 1½ to 2½cm (½ to 1in).

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