Foremost seed potatoes (originally called Suttons Foremost) are a variety of heritage seed potatoes first added to the national variety list in 1954. Although Foremost were an instant hit with gardeners who liked it’s excellent flavour and resistance to disintegration when boiling, it’s average sized yields and disease resistance meant it never really took off commercially.
That said, it does have good common scab resistance.
Foremost potatoes are short to oval in shape with white skin and waxy white flesh. Bake them, boil them or throw them in a salad.
First earlies are typically ready for harvesting around 13-15 weeks from planting.
