Growing Instructions

Timing: In most areas seed potatoes can be sown from August to February. In sandy frost free areas they can also be sown during June and July. In cool areas sow 1 month before the expected last frost.

Preparation: Soil should be well worked up preferably to 25cm deep prior to planting so the soil is fine and friable. Do not plant where potatoes or tomatoes have grown last year.

Planting: Sow in furrows 10cm deep, 25cm between tubers and 75cm between rows. Sprinkle a complete fertiliser, preferably high in phosphorous on each side of the potato, using approximately 30gm per plant. Fill in the trench.Seed exceeding 110gm may be cut providing there are at least 2 eyes on each part. If potatoes are cut they should be planted immediately preferably into warm moist soil. Do not cut the seed when the weather is cool or the ground is wet.

Growing: Two or three times during the growing season potatoes should be cultivated to control weeds and loosen the soil. Do not cultivate deeply and drag some of the soil towards the plant.To achieve high yields and top quality tubers, keep the soil consistently moist during growth. Do not over water or allow to dry out.

Harvesting: Potatoes are ready to lift when the tops begin to die off.

One of the most Productive vegetables you can grow.

Each tuber can make an additional 75 to as many as 200 tubers.

The tubers are sometimes used as a substitute for potatoes.

They have a similar consistency, and when raw have a similar texture, but a sweeter, nuttier flavour.

When raw and sliced thinly they can be used for a salad. The carbohydrates give the tubers a tendency to become soft and mushy if boiled, they retain their texture better when steamed.

They store their carbohydrates in a form of inulin, a starch that is not utilized by the body for energy, unlike sugar.

The inulin cannot be broken down by the digestive system which can cause flatulence and in some cases gastric pain.

They are recommended as a potato substitute for diabetics, since they are filling but not absorbed by the body, and because they also show indications of assisting in blood sugar control. Jerusalem artichoke flour is also recommended for those who are allergic to wheat and other grains.
