2kg "Rocket" Seed Potatoes

First introduced in 1987, the solanum tuberosum "Rocket" potatoes are some of the earliest potatoes to crop, producing high yields of attractive, evenly sized potatoes. This popular variety have a waxy texture, yellowish skin, and a mild taste, and are great for boiling or using in salads. The Rocket plants are well suited to container growing, and have a good all-round disease resistance, including golden eelworm.
