Salad potato varieties can be first or second earlies, or maincrops. They all share qualities of fine flavour and waxy texture whether eaten hot or cold. Salad potatoes tend to be smaller and lower yielding than other varieties, and respond to heavy dressings of compost or rotted manure before planting, which will improve yields considerably.
Solanum tuberosum 'Pink Fir Apple' is one of the oldest potato varieties, bearing unusual long, knobbly, pink-skinned tubers with a wazy, yellow and a distinctive nutty flavour. The flavour is said to improve when the potatoes are served cold. Solanum tuberosum 'Pink Fir Apple' tubers are perfect for boiling, chipping, or eating as a salad potato.The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
