Nadine potato seed is one of the most succesful potato varieties introduced by Jack Dunnett.
Very high yield of uniform round tubers, white skin, pale creamy centre and firm waxy texture - good all round potato.
Has high resistance to eelworm and tolerance to common scab, with good resistance to haulm (foliage) blight and slugs - looks good on the exhibition bench too. All in all a good tasty potato to try.
Waxy potatoes are firmer and hold their shape. Floury potatoes are softer and break up more easily. The potato varieties mentioned on this web site are suggestions only and there are many more available.
