Pentland Javelin' is a first early variety with white waxy flesh. It is ideal for boiling and in salads and shows all round diseases, in particular to golden eelworm. As a first early variety chitted potatoes should be planted 30cm apart and in rows 40-50cm apart. Earlies are less likely to encounter pest problems as they are lifted so much earlier in the year. Pentland Javelin has shown some resistance to scab problems. Earlies can be lifted and eaten as soon as they are ready. This will be when above-ground growth is still green, and usually as soon as the flowers open.
