Growing Calendar for Shetland Black Seed Potatoes
Delivery: Early January to Late May
Purple-skinned long oval tuber variety with a floury-textured white flesh offering a sweet, buttery flavour. Unique dark purple ring around inside edge of flesh make it an attractive heritage variety. Delicious and fun for children to see and taste.
A second-early variety, you can expect lots of tubers from June. Chosen by us for its heritage status you have peace of mind this variety is an old dependable favourite that does especially well growing in UK conditions.
We recommend you plant around 5 tubers to a Marshalls potato Gro-Sack for anything up to 50 mature potatoes in summer.
Very nice healthy seed potatoes - quite big too. After sitting on the windowsill in a cardboard tray they have sprouted big purple clusters of shoots very quickly, and are now ready to go in the ground. They were well packed and arrived very quickly indeed. No problems at all!
