Charlotte Seed Potatoes are the classic salad potato with their enticing fresh flavour and are a kitchen essential for any cook.

They will produce numerous long, oval, cream skinned tubers with a firm but waxy light-yellow flesh that are delicious served both hot and cold. They are also excellent when boiled as they hold their shape well and can also be used in salads.

Planting Guide

Plant Charlotte Second Early planting potatoes outside from March onwards, 10cm deep and 20cm apart in a line. Leave at least 30cm between lines to allow growing space.

Before planting, place the seed potatoes on a cool, bright windowsill for 4-6 weeks to encourage them to sprout. This process is known as ‘chitting’ and will help prepare the potato tuber for going in the ground.

Once planted, ‘earth up’ the potatoes by drawing the soil up around new shoots to protect them from frost damage and prolong the growing time. Earthing up also protects developing potatoes from sunlight which causes them to turn green and poisonous. Keep potatoes well watered during dry or warm weather.

Harvesting Guide

When ready to harvest, cut back plant stalks to ground level before gently lifting the plant up with a garden fork.

Carefully remove the potatoes from the plant and wash well before use in the kitchen.
