Swift Potato Seeds

Potato 'Swift' is among the fastest maturing of the first early varieties, being the quickest to produce heavy crops of round, smooth, white-fleshed baby new potatoes, and producing larger tubers than Potato 'Rocket'. Its short bushy habit makes it ideal for containers or potato bags where space is limited. Potato 'Swift also has partial double eelworm resistance. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

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!

Providing you can keep some of your own harvest back you can continue to plant and crop swift potatoes all year round. During the colder months it's best to move them inside a greenhouse to avoid frost damage however using potato tubs you can grow this crop all year round!

Please note we have had to make some changes to our potato sales due to the increased cost in shipping. Potatoes are sent on a 48hr service via a courier. The price has increased to allow for some of the additional postal charge. Very sorry but this is out of our hands.
