I was looking at buying a few potato setts and came across a variety Carolus, I have not heard of them or know anyone who has tried these, they get a good write up in T&Ms catalogue. Has anybody grown these? if so what is the verdict bearing in mind I only grow in containers now. I would be interested to hear what the panel think.
Hello Frank. I have grown Carolus for the last 2 years and I shall this year. It is a good cropper and a good keeper. It is a good all-rounder with blight resistance. We shall be having some with dinner this evening
Thanks for your reply which is just about the same results as claimed in the catalogue which is good news, I will give them a try this year. Last year I grew Desiree,which did very well but the only problem I had was scab which affected them quite badly, but they are fine once peeled. We are still using them now. I like to try new things and Carolus are new to me, cant wait now roll on spring
