Plant details

Maris Peer' is one of Pippa Greenwood's favourite second early potatoes. It produces small, good-flavoured tubers that don't disintegrate or discolour during cooking. It is good for salads or sauteed, and apparently it is a great favourite with fish and chip shops as it makes crisp chips. The yields are heavy and it shows good disease resistance.
