Harvested in July - plentiful and delicious. Then I found a few in a bag that I had not sown so I planted them in a corner to try. I have just harvested 2.5 kg (in Nov), a real bonus.

Tried Pink Fir Apple for the first time this year. Croppped quite well with lots of mid size tubers. Taste was incredible and brought back memories of how potatoes used to taste. Shared some of the crop with friends are they can't wait to grow their own next season.
