A high yielding variety with a russet skin. Will grow successfully in any type of soil and makes very nice tasting mash, baked and boiled potatoes.
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.
