Potato Day 2020 – order your seed potatoes in advance

baskets of seed potatoesOur annual Huddersfield Potato Day is always popular. If you want to make sure you get the best pick of the potatoes, you can order from us in advance.

The idea of our Potato Day is that you can choose from around 30 different varieties of seed potato. This means you can just get what you need, instead of having to buy a whole bag of the same variety. It’s ideal for anyone with a small garden or containers, or if you just want to try something new.

We do our best to get your favourites, based on what was popular at our last Potato Day, and what our participants have asked us to buy.

Our 2020 varieties are:

1st Earlies: Casablanca (organic), Colleen (organic), Lady Christl, Maris Bard (organic), Red Duke of York, Rocket, Sharpe’s Express, Winston

2nd Earlies: Apache, British Queen, Charlotte (organic), Jazzy, Kestrel, Maris Peer (organic), Sarpo Una (organic).

Mains: Ambo (organic), Belle de Fontenay, Cara (organic), Carolous (organic), Desiree, Highland Burgundy Red, International Kidney, Mary’s Rose (organic), Orla (organic), Pink Gypsy (organic), Pink Fir Apple, Red Emmalie, Salad Blue (organic), Sarpo Kifli, Sarpo Mira (organic), Vales Sovereign.

You can find descriptions of many of these varieties in last year’s potato guide:

Our full 2020 guide will be available nearer the time.
