Please Note

These seeds should ideally be sown this season. All our packets have ‘Sow by Date’ guidance on them, this is the date the seeds should be sown in order to achieve the highest rate of germination. You will still see the same high-quality plants if sowing in seasons after the ‘Sow by Date’ but may see a reduction in germination rate

Seed Potato 'Swift' - 1kg

Marshalls Garden

Catalogue Code: 10506839

Sale price

Sold out this season - Come back in July

Regular price £5.49
One of the quickest growing varieties of new potato, producing a good crop with a delicate taste in as little as 8 weeks from planting. Ideal for growing in pots, bags and containers, but will do equally well in a garden or plot.

Key Features

  • Perfect for pots and containers
  • Prefers full sun
  • Prefers part shade

Pack Contents: 1kg (12-15) Potato Tubers

Description

  • Quick growing variety
  • Resistant to bruising, blackleg, scab and eelworm
  • Suited for growing under fleece

'Swift' is aptly named for its rapid growth, producing harvestable crops in as little as 8 weeks from planting. These potatoes yield delicate-tasting baby new potatoes with round, smooth, white flesh, perfect for steaming and using in salads.

The bushy nature of 'Swift' makes it an excellent choice for small or limited growing spaces. Its compact size also makes it well-suited for growing under protective fleece covers, which provide a warmer environment that accelerates growth. This protective layer not only speeds up growth but also offers added defense against common blights.

Disease Resistance

'Swift' boasts impressive resistance to a range of pests and diseases, including bruising, blackleg, scab, virus, and eelworm infection. This natural resilience makes it a reliable choice for home gardeners seeking low-maintenance potato varieties.

Seed Potato Information

All our 'Swift' seed potatoes are graded between 35mm x 35mm to 55mm x 55mm in size. This ensures a mix of sizes within each pack, reflecting the diverse range of heritage varieties we offer. While size can influence individual crop yields, overall harvest from a given weight of seed potatoes remains consistent. For instance, 1kg of 'Swift' seed potatoes will produce a comparable harvest regardless of individual potato size.

How to Guide

SWIFT POTATO SALAD SERVES 4 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1-2 kg swift potatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp garlic mayo
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp capers, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp cornichons, finely diced
  • 2 spring onions or a bunch of chives, finely sliced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Pinch of truffle sea salt

METHOD:           

  1. Boil your potatoes in salted water for 12-15 mins depending on their size until cooked – check with a skewer or the tip of a knife.
  2. After straining but whilst the potatoes are still warm mix them in a large bowl with garlic mayonnaise, shallot, capers, cornichons, spring onions, lemon zest and season generously. Add the parsley last and toss gently so that the potatoes don’t break apart.
  3. Allow to cool or enjoy warm. Try serving this Cornish style potato salad with some steamed fish or chargrilled chicken breast.
