Vanessa Potatoes have a smooth red skin and tasty yellow flesh with good drought and common scab resistance. Ideal for exhibition due to its shallow eyes.

Vanessa is a versatile potato variety, ideal for salads, and a very good early boiling potato that can be baked as well.

Salad variety. Flesh Colour - Yellow. Uses - new, boil and baked.

Immediately upon arrival unpack your seed potatoes and keep them in trays in a light, airy, frost free place to sprout prior to planting. Planting - depth 10cm (4"); spacing in row - 30-40cm (12-16"); width between rows - 70-75cm (28-30").

Soil should be well-worked and rich in humus (farm-yard manure or garden compost). Earth up two to three times as the top grows, to avoid green tubers. Feed with a balanced fertiliser and always keep your potatoes watered well during dry periods to ensure a good crop.

NB: Quantities are approximate and based on 10 tubers per kilogram.
