After 40 years of allotment gardening this is the first year I have grown Sarpo. With drought conditions most of summer I was totally surprised at the size and condition of the crop. No disease, large potatoes and excellent when roasted. Will be ordering next year.
by watching some of the people that have grown sarpo mira and the results that they had, i decided to get some for myself which i will be planting on my allotment, . hope i get the same results
I cannot recommend this potato highly enough. I'm a new allotment holder and these potatoes weren't touched by pests and disease when compared to the Maris pipers I grew. I had a wonderful yield and still have plenty left.
I grow Sarpo Mira this year. Brilliant. Will definitely be ordering this year for next year
These will happily grow through the worst blight seasons and they are almost immune to slugs with very little damage. They do give a heavy crop and keep well for months. I would advise eating the ones longer than 7 inches rather than storing as they tend to go hollow in the middle. Seem to be good all round eating potatoes too as they are fine for boiling but excellent for chips and roasting.
As a keen vegetable gardener I've grown various variety of potatoes but this year was the first time of growing this variety. Well I was amazed at the size, quantity and quality of the tubers when I started harvesting. Then even more surprised at how well they baked, chipped mashed and roasted, they also tasted great too. Will be growing another couple of rows in 2014
As a first time potato grower these were a dream. We planted them out in early summer and they produced a lovely crop of pale pink skinned, medium sized potatoes. I have roasted them and boiled them and they have received approval from all who have eaten them. They have a delicious dense flesh, well suited to baking, mash and roasting. They resisted blight despite the abnormally wet conditions last year. They are definitely ones we are very keen to sow again this year.
