Desiree seed potatoes produce oval, red skinned tubers with pale yellow flesh. Medium dry matter, firm cooked texture, good boiling, fresh French Fry & mashing quality. Desiree seed potatoes are a popular choice amongst many celebrity chefs including Delia Smith & Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, due to their potential to make fantastic roast potatoes. Desiree is a heavy cropper and early bulking with high resistance to drought and good resistance to potato virus Y and powdery scab. Susceptible to potato cyst nematode and misshapes on heavy soils. Moderately susceptible to spraing & mild mosaic viruses. Maincrop seed potatoes mature in 125-140 days and, if planted in late April, can be harvested by mid August.
