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.
Potatoes are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:
Soil Preparation: remove weeds and large stones and dig in plenty of fertiliser or manure.
Planting Distance: plant seeds around 25cm (10in) apart, around 10cm (4in) deep into the soil. Rows should be around 60cm (2ft) apart.
Pest Control: ensure good soil sterilization, rotational practices, and crop nutrition to reduce risk of pests.
Watering Requirements: water regularly, particularly during dry weather.
