MAINCROP SEED POTATO
Belmonda Certified Organic Seed Potatoes
When we talk about First Early, Second Early, Maincrop etc we mean the length of time taken for the plant to mature and give a good harvest. If you planted a tuber of each cropping type on the same day, the earlies would be ready first.
- First Early potatoes are the 'new potatoes' you buy in the supermarket. Harvest them, cook and eat them the same day for dinner for an amazing new potato taste. They take 10-12 weeks to mature and do not store for too long.
- Second Earlies take around 14-16 weeks to mature.
- Main Crop take around 15 – 22 week to mature and can be stored for much longer.
