A consistent and reliable second early cropper. The ‘Marfona’ Variety is prized for its disease resistance and heavy yields of large cream-yellow, oval shaped tubers. Their texture is firm and waxy though the flavour can be subtle and mild, all of which make this variety great for general purpose cooking such as boiling, baking, mashing and chipping.
Seed potatoes are generally chitted before planting. Anywhere between 2 – 6 weeks before planting is generally the timeframe. Keep the rounded, blunt end of the seed potato facing upwards and under full sun. once the shoots are around 3cm long (1 inch) they can then be moved into their final position in the ground or in potato bags.
Plant in a position with full sun and moist, fertile soil. Susceptible to frost damage so some organic mulch is advised. Mound the soil around the tubers and stems or cover them with a layer of black polythene as they grow to keep them healthy and protected from frost. Water regularly.
