The ALL ROUND Sarpo
Shona has excellent late blight tolerance as well as being resistant to many other diseases. Sarpo Shona is one of the newest additions to the Sarpo family. A white skinned early main crop potato which has many of the classic Sarpo characteristics with an intermediate taste and texture. is a very productive variety which matures early and has a good skin finish and easy to use well rounded tubers.
We think that Shona has the potential to be our star performer because of its great all round ability and character.
David Shaw says ….
Great multi use potato
Loved for its state and cook ability
Best for small gardens and container growing
Excellent blight and disease tolerance
Matures early with large yields
Sarpo Shona is an intermediate potato in culinary terms with a relatively high dry matter, but waxy enough to withstand serving boiled. A great taste and as easy peel shape makes this a great variety to grow in the garden.
Top River Cottage Chef, Gelf Anderson says…
Made good mash; if being ultra-critical, had a slightly powdery finish on it, but still an excellent result, smooth, fluffy and a good potato flavour
Amazing chips, one of the best chipping potatoes I have used, blew away any organic variety I can currently source
