I received my Sharpes Express potatoes last week. I am now going to put them in egg trays in the polytunnel to get them "chitting" As I got them promptly I have plenty of time to let them "chit" and still get them in the tunnel early.

I have been growing Sharps Express for the last 10 years and I think they are an excellent all round potatoe.A good bowl of the small ones to me are the centre piece of a nice refreshing salad. The big ones will go with any main meal my family and friends think they are the best first early for their taste and consistiney.
