Description

Seed Potato - Nicola

Please note that the seed potatoes are sold as whole and may or may not have shoots - Supplied as dormant tubers. They are also an indeterminate variety. To ensure the longevity of the seed potato, store it within the 0-5°C range.

Nicola potatoes thrive in cool to warm weather conditions and don't tolerate frost or hot summer temperatures. These creamy yellow potatoes have a delightful flavour and texture, perfect for baking, mashing, and potato salad. With a height of 50cm, they prefer loose, fertile, and deep soils. You can get between 10 small potatoes to 5 large potatoes in 1kg; if they are too big, cut them in half. Experience the joy of having your abundant crop of delicious and creamy potatoes by easily growing them at home!

Seed potatoes undergo controlled field conditions to ensure they are authentic and free from disease, promoting robust plant growth and increased yield. It is recommended to plant them after frost season in a well-lit and warm space for a few weeks to encourage short, thick sprouts. Before planting, cut tubers with at least one or two noticeable eyes, but be sure to allow the cut portions to dry, preventing the risk of rot. It is important not to make the pieces too small as it can decrease yield.

Cover tubers 15 cm deep with well-prepared soil or mulch (25-30 cm). Harvest them when the foliage turns yellow and stops growing, usually 110-130 days after planting. Early harvests may be taken as soon as small baby potatoes are ready to use but bear in mind that this may reduce the yield of larger potatoes.
