Rocket seed potatoes, when first released in 1987, were the quickest bulking of all early potatoes. Rocket’s ability to grow large crops of uniformed, round tubers made it very popular.
Considered to be one of the better exhibition potatoes at the time, Rocket tubers are white fleshed and skinned, with shallow eyes and a mild taste. Great for boiling and with salads.
These seed potatoes have good resistance to blackleg, common scab and spraing.
First earlies are typically ready for harvesting around 13-15 weeks from planting.
JBA Tip – Lifting your Rocket potatoes before full maturity is recommended to prevent the tubers from cracking.
