An unusual variety with richly coloured tubers so red they almost look like beetroot. A perfect example of the joy of growing your own, as you will not find anything like it in the supermarket.. Great fun to grow alongside your usual choice of varieties, to bring colour and flavour to the dinner table. Boil, mash, roast or steam, cooking then with the skin on will help preserve the most intense colour. 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 1 to ½cm (½ to 1in). Potatoes are delivered in 1kg bags, each pack containing approx. 8-14 tubers.
