New potatoe variety
« on: February 02, 2019, 14:45 »
I have just bought some Carolus maincrop, advertised as being blight resistant, just checked on AHDB website and on their resistance scale it is shown as having a score of 9 for both early and late blight. Has anyone grown these? If so do they live up to the reccommdation?

They've grown and recommended its taste for the last few years on the Beechgrove garden TV programme :)

During the season it is on BBC2 Scotland on Thursday evenings and then repeated on 'ordinary' BBC2 on Sunday mornings

Beechgrove  is the best most practical of the gardening programmes.
Definitely worth watching.
