This first early variety was first introduced in 1942 and was grown by Jeremy Shirley's father in the late 1940s - the Dad's Army days!

Home Guard is a superior potato of excellent flavour that does not go floury like some varieties, making it an excellent boiling potato. Both the skin and flesh are pure white.

High-yielding and with good resistance to scab, which explains why this popular wartime variety found huge commercial success - and has continued to remain one of the gardener's favourites since WWII.
