Foremost Potato Seeds.

Foremost potato seeds were first added to the national variety list in 1954, and was at the time called Suttons Foremost. They became a big hit with gardeners who liked its good flavour and resistance to disintegration when boiling.

Foremost gives average sized yields and disease resistance, so thus this variety never took off commercially, and now seeds are only grown for the garden trade in the UK

Foremost potato seeds were awarded the RHS award of garden merit in the past, so well worth a try.

I've grown this variety for over 30 years. I was introduced to it by my father and in my opinion it's got the best flavour & quality of all the early varieties.

I grew this variety last year and had a reasonable yield (especially given the sodden year) which had a really good flavour and, to my surprise, have also kept exceptionally well in sacks over winter. Still eating them now in January as their taste boiled is superior to the maincrop that we use for mashing and roasting!
