red duke of Yorkseed potato

Red Duke of York seed potatoes are a heritage potato variety dating back to 1942, said to be found in amongst a crop of white dukes in Holland. These  seed potatoes produce red skinned tubers with shallow eyes and yellow flesh. Red Dukes are a dry, mealy potato packed with flavour and do not disintegrate on boiling.



Ideal soil conditions for growing potatoes are sandy loam soils which can be enriched with lots of organic matter to aid water retention and provide suitable feeding for you potatoes.

Heavy clay soils can be improved by adding sharp sand and lots of organic matter in the autumn of the year so that the new soil mixture can be exposed to frost which will help break up the soil structure and make it easier to work with.

If you are unable to get organic matter you can add compost to the area you wish to plant your potatoes in.


Each potato should be 25cm from the next, with rows spaced 60cm apart. Always make sure the eyes are facing upwards. Drills should be 15cm deep.


Water well in dry spells.
