For those of you who ordered Sarpo Mira variety of potatoes not so good news. The weather has not been kind to this variety resulting in a substantial crop failure and supply shortages. However, better news as we will be substituting with an alternative maincrop variety which has similar qualities to Sarpo Mira.
The replacement variety is Picasso which is a modern disease resistant potato that produces round to oval tubers with creamy white, smooth waxy skins and pinkish eyes. You can expect similar high yields, ready for harvesting from September and storing well. It’s good for baking and mashing too.
