Second Earlies

Second Earlies are planted about a fortnight after first earlies, from mid-March to mid-April depending on the season. They produce a slightly bigger bulk of tubers and are usually ready to harvest by late July. Space tubers 12" apart in drills at 28" spacing.

  • Edzell Blue (Pre-1915, Scotland)

    Edzell Blue (Pre-1915, Scotland)

    Out of Stock for 2013
    First recorded in 1915 but is said to have been bred by an unknown gardener from Edzell in Angus during Victorian times. It has strikingly blue to purple skin and delicious floury white flesh with very high dry matter content. Yields very well.

  • Osprey (1999, Scotland)

    Osprey (1999, Scotland)

    Out of Stock for 2013
    Our Ospreys have lost their characteristic pink eyes in our collection (so I suspect it may be another variety altogether!). That said, this is an excellent modern variety of potato with high yields of golden oval tubers. Flesh is slightly waxy with a tasty, sweet, slightly nutty flavour. Bred by Jack Dunnet, Scotland's most successful modern breeder.

  • Ulster Emblem (1948, Ireland)

    Ulster Emblem (1948, Ireland)

    Out of Stock for 2013
    Another of John Clarke's 'Ulster' series, this is a long oval variety with white skin and flesh and a semi-waxy texture. Reasonable flavour with good cooking quality and a fairly good yield.

  • Great Scot (1909, Scotland)

    Great Scot (1909, Scotland)

    Out of Stock for 2013
    A flattish, round, yellow-skinned variety with white flesh and floury texture. Reasonably resistant to blight and other diseases. Produces good yields regularly and grows tall and upright. Raised by G. Muir of Lockerbie, Scotland.
