Blight resistant potatoes
Blighted potato leaves
Can you recommend blight resistant potato varieties? I'm looking for 2nd early and early main crop varieties.
Try the following varieties - but remember, resistance does not mean immunity.
- Earlies: Colleen, Karlena, Orla.
- Second earlies: Cosmos, Milva, Spunta
- Early maincrop: Remarka, Robinta, Stirling
- Late main crop: Cara, Valor, Verity, Arran Victory, Sarpo Mira
