I have just received my Arran Pilot seed potatoes. Checked them over prior to chitting. They are excellent quality and I can't wait to get started now!
I love their taste and I shall be looking forward to eating them with salad and BBQ with my family when they are allowed to visit my wife & I.
I have grown Arran Pilot for the last 20 years and have never been disappointed. Probably the best tasting potato even if yielding a little less than some newer varieties.
Superb 'New Potato' flavour. Early, good cropping, and the variety that the commercial growers wish they could grow (they dont keep their flavour for long enough for the supermarket chains to be interested) If you want to try an Early new potato to beat the 'Jersey Royals' for flavour Arron Pilot is you answer !
One of my favourites as the slugs do not get them before I do.Good early crop.
We always grow this variety. We usually find we can be digging early and they are unbeatable for taste when dug as new potatoes.
Grew this variety last year and they gave a good crop of reasonable size tubers so I decided to grow them again this year.
I got a bit ahead of things and gambled on planting early - mid Feb two days later they forecast that cold spell we had, thought they would be had by the frost and cold weather but today 24/4/13 6 plants have started to push through the earth.
Am very happy and will buy them again next year.
Ps my kids love them boiled with butter melted over them.
