  • Characteristics: This main crop variety of McCain Seed Potato are strong growers, producing a high yield of potatoes. 'Royal' are oval-shaped tubers with yellow skin. They will add wonderful flavour to any chips, roasties, mash or meals you make with them. They are also resistant to potato cyst nematode.
  • Harvesting Period: 'Royal' will harvest in the months of August - September.
  • Planting Advice: Main crop potatoes should be planted in late March. If potatoes have been previously grown for two years in succession, avoid planting in the same plot. Instead, an area that is sheltered with full sun and moist, well-drained soil is recommended. However, if space is limited, they can also be grown in potato bags on a patio.
  • Care & Maintenance: Keep seed potatoes away from frost pockets and ensure sunlight is present as much as possible. You should water them regularly, aiming to keep the soil moist and well-drained throughout their growth.

McCain 'Royal' Main Crop Seed Potatoes are a strong growing variety that will produce a high yield of oval-shaped tubers. Their smooth, yellow skin is a classic element of this potato and helps bring more flavour to chips, roasties, mash potato and more. They are also resistant to potato cyst nematode. They should be planted in late March and will harvest in the months of August - September. Place them in a sheltered plot of the garden in moist, well-drained soil. If space is limited, growing them in potato bags is another suitable option.

You should avoid planting them in the same plot where potatoes have been grown for two years in succession. Full sunlight, moist, well-drained soil and well rotted manure is recommended. The potatoes should be planted in rows, spaced out by 45cm. The rows themselves should be spaced out by 75cm. Then, plant the seed potatoes in 10cm deep holes and refill them with soil. Once their shoots reach 20cm, mound up the soil around the shoots. Repeat this process after another 3 weeks of growth.
