Maris Peer potato seed

Oval White/Creamy Fleshed Variety.

Maris peer potato seed produces a large crop of round, small to medium, white-fleshed tubers that are waxy and a floury taste.

The haulm (or top growth) makes a very handsome plant with amazing purple scented flowers thus making it a great patio potato.

The potato has had a recent revival due to the demand for flavoursome small uniform salad/boiling potatoes. A variety that is suited for second cropping and harvesting at Christmas.

They have a good resistance to skin diseases.
