First early seed potatoes are planted between February and April and normally harvested in June and July, prior to other varieties. They produce smaller potatoes that can be used new, boiled, steamed or sauteed.
First and second early potaotes are expensive in the shops and taste better when just been harvested, so many people grow these. They also take up less room and are less prone to potato blight, as they are generally harvested before the disease has taken hold.
