Very popular variety with farmers. Large yields with early bulking properties and good drought resistance.
Second Earlies are planted between March and April and harvested between July and August. They take longer to grow than First Earlies so are ready to harvest around 14-17 weeks after planting. Yields are higher, and the potatoes are bigger than First Earlies. Ideal for boiling and salads, they are also good general-purpose potatoes.
