Seed Potato 'Up To Date'
This Scottish heirloom variety was first released in 1894, it has withstood the test of time as a popular all-round potato. A vigorous variety that makes excellent baked potatoes or the world famous French Fries. A late-season variety with white flesh and white skin. Slightly flattened potatoes with an oval shape. One of the best storing potatoes available. Indeterminate, harvest 100-120 days.
All potatoes can be grown in the soil, in towers and even grow bags. INDETERMINATE POTATOES: 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. DETERMINATE POTATOES: Determinate potatoes, like determinate tomatoes, grow to a set height and produce a reliable crop of tubers without the need for covering their developing stem. Simply plant around 10cm deep and they will produce a single layer of potatoes below the soil surface. These are usually early, cropping potatoes, maturing in just 50-70 days.
