Known as the "butterless baker", the solanum tuberosum "Vivaldi" potato is characterised by its creamy taste. These ovular potatoes have a yellow-brown skin with brown speckles on the surface and have few very, shallow eyes. The Vivaldi is a second early variety of potato that produces high yields of "baby potatoes", but can be left in the ground for longer and treated as a maincrop for larger tubers. This versatile potato has a mouth-watering taste whether boiled, baked, mashed, or roasted. The plants grow to an average height and produce lots of white flowers. They have good resistance to common scab and are well suited to growing in containers or bags.
Potatoes are easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:
Soil Preparation: ensure the soil is well-drained and dig in plenty of manure.
Planting Distance: plant seeds around 25cm (10in) apart, around 10cm (4in) deep into the soil. Rows should be around 75cm (2ft 6in) apart.
Pest Control: take precautions against cutworms, slugs, wireworms, and potato cyst eelworms.
Watering Requirements: water regularly, particularly during dry spells.
