Growing Calendar for Desiree Seed Potatoes
Delivery: Early January to Late April
This main crop red potato has melt-in-the-mouth yellow flesh; it makes mash to die for and those red skins crisp up beautifully when baked.
Desiree stores well and has high yields of oval red skinned potatoes. Simply the best red for mash and baking!
You can expect heavy crops of quality red potatoes even in a dry year.
The reason for the "poor " review is simply the size of the seed. One can expect one or two large tubers to be large but the reccommended " egg size " seed must have come from an ostrich ! hence have had to source more locally.
I have bought these desiree seed potatoes to grow in bags again as I have grown them the last three years with great success.
