Swift vies with Rocket for being the very earliest. The smooth, white skinned, round to oval tubers have a waxy flesh with a delicate flavour. A superb choice for potato salad.


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 the following:


- 1kg: approx 8-14 tubers

- 2.5kg: approx 20-35 tubers

- 5kg: approx 40-70 tubers
