Has anybody planted picasso potato tubers? As a new veggie gardener, I purchased some of these and have them chatting at the moment, have I made a good purchase here?? all the blurb was good but there is nothing like hearing it from all you experts out there...
It's not a variety that I've grown but have a look here - Picasso Seed Potatoes - and also read the two reviews.
By the way I hope that your seed potatoes are chitting and not chatting!
Love the fact that your spuds are chatting (sorry we can't resist it). They are fairly well known and seem like a good all-rounder. Are they the ones with the pinky-red splodges on? If so, they look nice too! We probably all find our favourites by trial and error so I hope you like them.
I grew them last year on the advice of the allotment shop man.They were very good size and tastewise.
Oh goody, I just a kilo of them today.
A relatively new variety bug a good cropper
A good clean white potato for eating and also good on the show bench
My local gardening group had a heaviest potato competition where we all used Picasso and put one in a 17liter polypot bag
The winner had 53Ib which was excellent for one in a polypot
I've grown them in potato bags and in the ground. Love them, they are really good and easy to grow , fairly good yield and really tasty to eat.
Yes I grew them a couple of years ago and they were a good size and tasty, though unfortunately I have problems with eelworm on my allotment which attacked them quite badly. I grow Kestrel now which seem to fair better. I'm sure yours will be fine though!
