Solanum tuberosum 'Duke of York'
First Early Potato 'Duke of York' - 10 tubers
Solanum tuberosum Duke of York is a half hardy deciduous seed potato. It is best planted in moist but well drained soil, and grows to an ultimate height of 0.1m - 0.5m over 1 - 2 years.
Pack contains 10 tubers.
First earlies and second earlies perform well, producing better, healthy, less diseased crops if chitted before planting. Chitting encourages strong shoots, which speeds up the growth once in the ground. Place your seed spuds in an egg or seed tray in a cool, dry, frost-free location out of direct sunlight. The new shoots will appear from one end; this is the so called rose or stubs end. Orientate so the rose end is pointing upwards. When chunky chits reach approx. 25mm (1 inch), plant out in the ground or large container.
Plant outside from mid March onwards and harvest after 10 weeks.
