Foremost Seed Potatoes are a variety of heritage potatoes first added to the national list in 1954. Although Foremost were an instant hit with gardeners who liked it's excellent flavour and resistance to disintegration when boiling, its average sized yeilds and disease resistance meant it never took off commercially. That said, it does have good common scab resistance. Foremost potatoes are short to oval in shape with white skin and waxy white flesh. Bake them, boil them or throw them in a salad. First earlies are typically ready for harvesting aroound 13-15 weeks from planting.
