1kg "Pentland Javelin" Seed Potatoes

Solanum tuberosum Pentland Javelin potatoes were bred by renowned potato breeder Dr. Jack Dunnett and for years were considered to be one of the finest varieties of first early potato. The plants produce high yields of short ovular tubers with light brown skin and tasty white flesh which are great for boiling and using in salads. They have good all-round disease resistance and suffer from very little slug damage.
