Maris Peer Potato Seeds
A second early potato producing uniform, flavourful boiling potatoes. Maris Peer potatoes are especially prized for use in potato salads, partially because of their uniformity, but also because they retain their colour, form and superb flavour throughout the cooking process.
Like first earlies, Maris Peer potatoes are best eaten straight out of the ground. They’ll keep for about a month in the ground after reaching maturity. Because of its smallish size, Maris Peer potatoes are excellent for container gardening. They also happen to have beautiful, scented, purple flowers making it the perfect patio potato.
This particular variety is especially suited for second cropping and harvesting at Christmas. Simply plant them again in August (ideally in bags or in containers that can be moved indoors away from the risk of frost).
Best used as a baby potato.
Optional: Keep some seed potatoes back in a dark location and allow them to sprout. Plant in tubs late July or Early August and you can enjoy fresh baby potatoes on Christmas day!
How do you grow Maris Peer Potato from seed? You should start chitting your Maris Peer potatoes in the middle of February, so that they have around four weeks to sprout before being planted out. Your potatoes should be kept in a cool, light environment.
How long does it take to grow Maris Peer Potatoes? Maris Peer Potatoes take about 15 to 17 weeks before being ready to harvest after the seed potatoes are planted.
How many Maris Peer Potatoes do you get per plant? If conditions are correct when growing your own Maris Peer Potatoes, you should be rewarded with a harvest of about 10 potatoes per plant. How many Maris Peer Potatoes you can harvest highly depends on the care you have given your plants and whether the conditions are right during the growing season.
