New Sweet Potato Varieties from D.T. Brown – UK Trialled with Brilliant Results!

Fruit and Vegetable specialists D.T. Brown is offering three new varieties of sweet potato which it claims will give excellent results in the UK.

Trialled extensively in many areas of the UK, D.T. Brown has been following trials of the Erato varieties for the past two years and has been impressed by both the quality and quantity of crop produced. Says D.T. Browns general manager Tim Jeffries ‘Our customers really enjoy growing sweet potatoes and sales are increasing year on year, so we are really pleased to find varieties which crop more reliably in the UK’.

The Erato varieties are not just for the home gardener either, they are now favoured by many commercial growers who appreciate their reliability, uniformity and increased yields.

Easy to grow, the company recommends planting out in ridges, just like normal seed potatoes, with the first crops ready for harvesting from September and continuing into October. They are also ideal for growing in large containers in a bright and sunny spot. Once harvested, the crop can be kept and stored for several months to enjoy through the winter.

D.T. Brown is listing Erato Deep Orange, Erato Gusto and Erato Violet. Available as packs of 5 young plants priced at £9.95 or as a collection of 15 young plants (5 of each) for £19.90 saving £9.95.

Despatch from mid-May.
