Product Description

Ideal for making chips and roasting in the oven, Maris Piper Main Crop Seed Potatoes are widely grown and well known.

Maris Piper Seed Potatoes are considered one of the best potatoes for making chips.

The most widely grown and best known variety of Main Crop potato, this ‘Heritage Potato’ variety is great for beginners to grow and is suitable for storage.

It is high yielding with many cream skinned oval tubers per plant that have a cream, floury textured flesh. They are an essential for any cook as a versatile all rounder with a good mild flavour. Beyond chips, they can also be used for salads, roasts and as jacket potatoes.

This variety was also awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit due to its excellent consistency and ease to grow.

How to plant

We recommend planting Main Crop potato tubers, such as Maris Piper, outside between March and April, 10cm deep and 20cm apart in a line. Leave at least 30cm between lines to allow growing space.

Prior to planting, encourage Seed Potatoes to sprout by placing them on a cool, bright windowsill for 4-6 weeks. This process is known as ‘chitting’ and will help prepare the potato tuber for going in the ground.

Once planted, ‘earth up’ the potatoes by drawing the soil up around new shoots to protect them from frost damage and prolong the growing time. Earthing up
