Description

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.

Disease resistant.

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!
