Lovely cream colour and uniformity define this second early variety of seed potato. This species is most notable for its even, oval shape, thin, waxy skin and full flavour when served hot or cold. The ‘Nicola’ is also a great option for planting later in the season or left in the ground longer for some fresh, garden grown potatoes around Christmas time. Its relatively shorter stem height and more compact nature make it a great choice for patio and container planting.
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.
