This evening I’ve been out in the garden planting the first batch of Potatoes into my special growing sacks..
I ordered Desiree Potatoes form Marshall’s and they ended up sending me Maxine instead because they had run out.. so I did a bit of research to find out exactly what Maxine spuds were like…
Beautiful round tubers with smooth, bright red skin.
White waxy flesh which stays firm when cooked.
A heavy cropping variety producing large tubers whatever soil it is grown in.
The flavour as ‘excellent’ and the cookability as almost perfect.
I’m a little bit late in getting them planted, but i’m sure they’ll be just fine 🙂
