Seed Potatoes

Apache (Early Crop)

*Available May through to July*
*Available August through to December*

Apache Potatoes are incredibly unique - striking red skin dotted with cream coloured patches, this eye-catching variety is sweet tasting with a buttery chestnut flavour.

They are relatively small, round and have a slightly waxy texture.

When scrubbed and cooked whole, Apaches make a delicious change from the conventional potatoes. Their contrasting colours stay bright if blanched first before roasting whole in their skins.

Nearly everyone loves a great spud and why not?....... high in fiber, rich in vitamin B and C, packed with more protein and iron than any other vegetable, potatoes are a key ingredient to nearly everyone's diet, they are a mountain of fun to grow and it just got easier.

Certified, NZ Grown Seed Potatoes... nothing beats them!

Preparing your seed potatoes

  • You should aim to have brought your preferred seed potatoes up to 6 weeks before planting... this is to allow them to begin to sprout (called chitting)
  • Always use certified, virus free seed potatoes to ensure you get great results.
  • It's important not to plant out your Seed Potatoes until after the risk of frosts have ended (alternatively if you're super eager, the use of Frost cloth can do the trick )
  • Store your seed Potatoes in a nice dry area until they produce shoots between 2 – 4 cm long (storing in an egg container is our wee hack!)
