Carlingford seed potatoes are an excellent, salad type, second early variety, which produce a high number of round-to-oval shaped tubers. Carlingford seed potatoes have white skin and creamy coloured flesh with a firm, waxy texture for salad use. Disease resistance is good for common scab, skin spot and potato virus Y resistance.. Second earlies are typically ready for harvesting around 15-22 weeks from planting. Special Note Carlingford can also be used as a second cropping variety and planted in early August for harvesting near Christmas. As with all potatoes – protect from frost.
