Seed Potato 'Nicola'
Developed in the 1960s in Germany, 'Nicola' became a commercial crop in 1973 where its popularity spread around the world because of it's yield, uniform tubers and exceptional flavour and texture. Bred in the 1960s by Dr Hans-Jurgen, and voted "Potato of the Year" in Germany in 2016, 'Nicola' is a staple variety that remains popular, even today. A cross between 'Clivia' and a wild potato, 'Nicola' is ideal for use as a jacket-baked potato, holding its shape well.
All potatoes can be grown in the soil, in towers and grow bags. In the case of indeterminate potatoes, they produce their crop along their growing stem, just like tomatoes; the only difference is that tomatoes grow above the soil, fruiting along the exposed stem upward; while potatoes crop below the soil, so the stem must be continually covered up in order to produce viable tubers. These are often your most prolific, late harvest varieties needing around 90-120 days to reach maturity.
