1kg "Pink Fir Apple" Seed Potatoes

An old French variety dating back to 1850, the solanum tuberosum "Pink Fir Apple" potato has made a revival in popularity over recent years. A late maincrop variety, these potatoes have a long, knobbly shape with a mixture of light brown and pink skin and store very well. They have a distinctive nutty flavour and are perfect for boiling or eating hot or cold in salads. Not often found in the shops, these unique potatoes are definitely worth growing in your garden.

When Your Plants Arrive…

  • Unpack your plants: Preferably straight after they arrive, you should carefully unpack your plants. They may appear slightly tired after their journey, however they will soon perk up again.
  • Identify each plant: Each type of plant (but not each individual plant) will be clearly labelled. Lay them out into their respective plant types (such as wild rocket, cauliflower, or peas).
  • Provide a drink: The roots of your plants may be dry, so provide all of them with a nourishing drink of water. Ensuring that the roots are stood upright, submerge the roots of each plant for a few minutes in a container of clean water.
Planting Your Vegetables or Herbs…

  • Their position: For the best results, plant your vegetables in a site that receives full sun.
  • Soil types: You should always avoid waterlogged soils. This is because they can lead to root rot and compacted surroundings, which will hinder your vegetables’ growth.
  • Planting distance: Plant your plugs between 15 - 20cm apart, and keep their stems level with the soil. Each row is best spaced 15 - 30cm away from one another.
  • Watering requirements: Water when planting, and also during periods of drought.
  • Hardiness: Our trusted nursery staff will attentively care for your vegetables, and only deliver them when it is warm enough for them to be planted in your garden.
