A real speciality if you want to try something different! This blue variety has long tubers with almost black skin and a blue-purple flesh that really makes it stand out from the crowd. With a creamy texture and an almost nutty aroma, Annelise Blue is lovely boiled or steamed and used to brighten up a salad or its fluffy flesh is perfect mashed for something different. Try as a jacket potato - they are simply delicious!

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 1.5 to 2.5cm (0.5 to1in).

All of our seed potatoes are certified "Safe Haven" or equivalent status. The Safe Haven Certification Scheme provides protection for the British potato industry and its customers from bacterial ring rot and other harmful organisms like brown rot and soft rots caused by Dickeya species. The scheme ensures that all seed is only grown from Safe Haven sourced seed or nuclear stock and this helps protect against any pests and diseases which affect potato and are not found in Britain. All our customers can therefore be assured of first class quality seed potatoes for their gardens and allotments.

6 quality tubers are perfect for a smaller garden or for those wishing to try a range of varieties.
