Maris Piper Seed Potatoes
Maris Piper is one of the best known and popular potato varieties on sale, with more Maris Piper grown across the UK than any other variety. It is also a great favourite with fish and chip shops because it is so reliable, its high dry matter makes it an excellent choice for home-style chips and other potato dishes.
Maris Piper has a creamy coloured flesh and although technically its skin is white to yellow in colour, it is regarded as a ‘white’ potato and is widely available as seed and from supermarkets. There is nothing like growing your own though.
This seed is a Main Crop variety for lifting when skins are set in the Autumn.
Seed Potatoes are available to order from mid-December for delivery from mid-January onwards.
