Potato Sarpo Mira. Solanum tuberosum.
The original Sarpo potato. Red skinned variety with high yields of tasty floury potatoes, which store well. Good resistance to blight, blackleg, late blight on foliage, late blight on tubers and potato virus Yo.
How to grow:
Maincrop. Floury texture. Potatoes love a rich fairly loose soil. Deep and well drained with plenty of organic matter. Grow potatoes in a different spot each year helps keep them healthy. Newly dug grassland can hold eel worm, so best to break new ground with something else. They dislike frost, so a warm sunny spot and keep the ground moist, preferably by watering from below.
A bad slug problem can hurt the plants, which lets in blight. If you see blighty leaves nip them out, if it’s gets back take off the stems altogether, the tubers will continue to grow a little.
Favourite ways to eat them:
High dry matter makes them great for roast potatoes.
A native of south America, cultivated as far as we know up to 10,000 years ago.
