  • Pack Contents: 1kg Pack (Approx. 15 Tubers)
  • Bred for great flavour
  • Great to grow in beds or sacks
  • Withstands drought well

Favoured by home-growers and cooks alike Desiree is a main-crop red potato that melts in the mouth thanks to its consistency on cooking; with contrasting yellow flesh it makes mash to die for and those red skins crisp up beautifully when baked.

You can expect heavy crops of quality red potatoes even in a year experiencing drought, which is a relief from our all too variable summers here in the UK. Showing resistance to powdery scab Desiree is more likely to be blemish-free for attractive tubers as well as tasty ones.

Useful tips:

After harvesting in autumn Desiree stores effectively somewhere cool and dry so you have a big supply of this popular potato in the colder months. That’s one thing off your mind and potatoes off your supermarket shopping list too.

We recommend you harvest up to four months after planting in spring, 18 weeks to be more accurate. If late frosts are predicted be sure to cover emerging stems with a horticultural fleece to avoid damage.
