First Early Seed Potatoes

First early potatoes, better known as “New Potatoes” are an extremely popular and versatile vegetable that are so eagerly awaited as the first potatoes of the year, and take between 10 - 12 weeks from planting to harvest.. 

First earlies, so called because they are planted early and are the quickest to mature, are generally boiled whole with their light skins intact and can be served with cooked meat, fish and poultry dishes or served cold with salads. However, due to their widespread appeal, there are numerous delicious recipes for cooking and serving new potatoes, including stews, curries and many other exotic and oriental dishes.

Growing first early potatoes is relatively easy and because they have a quicker growing period than main crop potatoes, they can be grown in tubs or planters, as well as out in open ground. Growing potatoes in containers is ideal for those who have small town gardens and for those who are content with growing small potato crops. For anyone considering turning a lawn area into a vegetable plot, potatoes would be the perfect first choice as they help to break up the soil for future crops.

Generally, First Earlies can be planted from February (inside) to April and would be ready to harvest from May to July. However, this is dependant on weather conditions and is likely to vary slightly from season to season. First Early potatoes should be planted in rows, about 1ft (30cm) between tubers and 2ft (60cm) between rows.
