The International Kidney is an early maincrop variety of potato, planted out in late April. They are a high yielding variety and have good flavour that has stood the test of time, for this variety has been around since 1879. Excellent either boiled or in a salad and offering natural resistance to scab and blight. Enjoy high yields and a supply lasting well into September and October.

Content: 2kg of seeding potatoes of various sizing, brown paper packaging

Planting variety: maincrop

Before planting: Be sure to chit your potatoes, leaving them in open air to allow sprouts to grow from the eyes, which are positioned on the blunter end of the potato. Stand the potatoes with the eyes facing up in natural light and plant out when chutes are 1.5-2.5cm in length.

Plant: Plant out once the soil has started to warm up, from April onwards. Plant between 7.5-13cm deep in a trench with a sprinkling of fertiliser and spaced 30cm apart with 40-50cm between rows. Ensure that the potatoes are planted with the chutes pointing upwards. As shoots appear, cover them with a ridge of soil so that a mound of 15cm is present around each plant by the end of the season.
