1kg "Picasso" Seed Potatoes

A garden and allotment favourite, the solanum tuberosum "Picasso" potato plant produces huge yields of waxy-fleshed tubers. Bred from the "Cara" potato, the Picasso has the same smooth, light yellow skin with striking pink eyes. It is popular with growers due to its good all-round disease and drought resistance. With its mild flavour and good firm texture, his versatile potato has a range of uses in the kitchen, and is particularly good for baking and mashing.
