Forest Gold is our own re-selection of International Kidney, which we believe to be an improvement.

Our name embraces the practice we make of using composted bark that effectively becomes the 'forest floor' or soil. We recommend this method, especially as composted bark is a natural organic harmless barrier to slugs. These can be grown both as a salad crop or allowed to grow on to produce a large floury potato that bakes, fries, mashes and sautés well. Particularly good for growing in large pots or tubs.

  • Chit tubers by placing 'eye' face up in egg boxes or shallow trays and standing in a warm light location.
  • Once small green shoots (or chits) appear move to a cooler location for a few weeks before planting out.
  • Best planted out mid March-April. Later plantings will be fine but yield may be smaller.
  • Dig trenches approximately 5" (12 cm) deep and 2 feet (60 cm) apart.
  • Press tubers into the base of the trench 12" (30 cm) apart with chits facing up and cover with soil.
  • Water in and keep the crop well watered in dry spells.
  • When the haulm (top growth of the plants) reaches 9" (23 cm) earth up around the plants leaving just the top 4" (10 cm) showing - repeat again later if required.
  • Potatoes should be ready for harvest approximately 10-15 weeks after planting.
