Post by: sion01 on October 21, 2011, 20:01
Does anybody know of a seed potatoe supplier who supplies the more uncommon varietys.I've been reading an old book and it mentions varieties I've never heard of ,Di Vernon,Pentland Beauty,Dunbar Rover which is immune to wart disease(whatever that is) and sutton's olympis which apparently is one (or was) one of the finest potatoes in existance there are many more.Thank you
