Hi We probably caused havoc today, buying so many plants at once, just as it got busy. Your fault, gave us too much of a choice of gorgeous plants......we had to buy them all. Off now to spend four days solid planting them!!!! thank you

RHS Award of Garden Merit

First introduced in 1850, Pink Fir Apple is a classic late salad variety that has maintained its popularity due to its fine flavour - the best of all in our opinion!

The red skinned tubers have light yellow flesh and are gorgeous hot or cold. The knobbly shape makes peeling nearly impossible, but don't let that put you off as the skin just adds to the flavour. For the ultimate in decadence make chips from individual tubers!

  • Scab resistant.
  • 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 April. Later plantings will be fine but yield may be smaller.
  • Dig trenches approximately 5" (12 cm) deep and 2' 6" (75 cm) apart.
  • Press tubers into the base of the trench 15" (38 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 16-20 weeks after planting.
Available from approximately February 2019
