Duke Of York Potatoes

Distribution of Potatoes for 2017 starts the 3rd week of January

A pale yellow waxy boiler at first but matures quickly into a versatile general purpose potato. Famous for their great taste. Smaller potatoes can be used as waxy salad potatoes but as the season progresses and the tubers grow dry matter increases. One of the tastiest spuds.

We also hold back some Duke of York seed for Summer planting by keeping them refrigerated to prevent sprouting. This seed can be planted in mid Summer for harvest from October onwards. If you have a well drained garden or polytunnel potatoes can be left in the ground for a Christmas harvest.

Sowing: Mid March or mid Summer for Autumn/Winter crops.

Pack Sizes
We sell seed potatoes in 2 pack sizes:

5 tuber pack perfect for trialling a variety of for using in potato grow bags.

2.5 kg bag containing approx 35/40 tubers for larger areas.

A fine potato, was worried at first that they were in bad nick as they had started sprouting a few shoots but the lads at quickcrop said it was nothing to worry about. Aside from that they arrived swiftly two days after I ordered them and was surprised by the catalogue and the free jellies too. A great idea and there are some things I hope to pick up in the catalogue in teh near future.

Can I plant these in the raised beds that others have just come out from? Thanks

Hi Phil. Good question. Unfortunately the answer is no. You will only encourage disease and the soil will be depleted of nutrients after Potatoes have just grown in the soil. You are best to put Potatoes in after Roots crops (carrots, parsnips etc) or Onions/ Garlic.
