  • Pentland Javelin potatoes

    These are one of my favourite first early potatoes and a variety I've grown on and off for a number of years. Fairly short growing, produces white flowers although not always, quite often the flower buds don't fully form and drop off before opening. Early to crop, though not as quick as some of the more recent varieties. They produce a good crop of white skinned and fleshed potatoes. They have a lovely waxy firm flesh that has good flavour, they taste nicely earthy here and are great boiled or as a salad spud. They will keep if left to grow on, but their texture is a little 'wet' and definitely best eaten as an early.

    I grew these again this year, a nice tasty crop earlier on. We didn't get to eat all of them as earlies and I've still some in the ground, pulled a plant yesterday. A bit of scab, but spuds are a nice useful size.
