‘Swift’ is a very fitting name for this variety of potato, as it produces one of the quickest growing crops in as little as 8 weeks from planting. It produces delicate-tasting crops of round, smooth, white-fleshed baby new potatoes, perfect for steaming for potato salads. The bushy nature of this variety makes it an excellent choice for growing where space is limited. Its short leaf growth is also another advantage to this variety, as it lends itself to growing well under a protective fleece cover, providing a warmer environmental which speeds up growth. While growing under protective fleece will provide added protection against common blights, ‘Swift’ is also very resistant itself to a whole host of pests and diseases such as bruising, blackleg, scab, virus and eelworm infection.
