You cannot be without the 5 star Desiree Potato.It does so well in most soils,good crops and delicious.I try many varieties in my garden but this one is hard to beat.
I live in the wild and wooly highlands of Scotland. I grow Desiree every year (mainly under black plastic) and consistently get a really good yield. Some of the potatoes are enormous. I've still got some left this year stored in the garage and their flavour hasn't been spoilt. I would recommend this potato to anyone who wants a good allround potato.
Have decided to grow only desiree this year as no other main crop compare with these on my soil
I have grown these for a number of years and found that they are very slug resistant and make excellent chip potatoes.
This potato has lasted well into the winter and is very versatile.Great for dauphinoise
