Osprey Potato Seeds.

The Osprey potato was bred from the Kestrel variety around ten years ago. It is characterised by its smooth skin and shallow pink eyes. It has become one of our most widely grown commercial varieties giving the great consistency and appearance.

Potato Osprey
Friday, 12 October 2012  |  H

This year I grew about 10 each of 14 different types of potato on my allotment to see if my standard core 3 (Accent, Desiree & Charlotte) could be bettered. This has been (2012) a difficult potato year: floods, drought & blight - not to mention the good old wireworm, slug & eelworm. My overall winner for the best yield & most unattacked variety was Osprey. I never give a top rating for anything in case something better comes along, but Osprey was close. It is a salad or boiler so I shall stay with Desiree for roasting & mashing. As yet I don't know how good a keeper it is but I'm betting that it can't be as good as Desiree or Lady Balfour. If it's not disastrous then I will definitely always be growing Osprey in the future.
