Never heard of them Blue City. Normally grow Desiree.
Just googled and Sarpo Mira are red like Desiree.
How good are Sarpo Mira - compared to Desiree?
Desiree are superior in taste other than being blight resistant I didn’t find Sarpo Mira that tasty decent yield though

Have got two of the grandkids tomorrow. Taking them up Allotment and plant this year's selection. Cara.
Not done them before so should be enjoyable.
Greenhouse seeds will no doubt get watered to death.
So what.

Still A Lurker
Left it a bit late this year and my local garden centre had been decimated - best I could do was Valor as a main crop. I'll be sticking them in next week. Apparently chitting doesn't make much difference with main crops, although I have always done this in the past - we'll see :unsure:

This year my seed potato selection is Aron Pilot (Earlies), Marris Peer ( 2nd earlies), Desiree ( Main ) and Anya.
Earlies and 2nd earlies planted last week, will leave the others till end of the month, when hopefully it will have rained !!!

Valor are a good main crop D with a very good yield when I grew them 2 or 3 years ago.
