They are for sale in the shops, so go ahead and chit them. Keep them in the light, not dark, and keep them cool but frost-free. Do not rub off all the shoots, but be careful with them so they don't get knocked off..
They are called maincrop, because that is what they are. They will stay in the ground much longer and they will take you through many months if you have enough. Earlies are for eating as soon as they are big enough; with loads of butter!
