This is the potato we Irish gardeners have waited for since the famine, the first truly blight resistant varieties of potatoes. For over 50 years the Savari family in Hungary have been breeding blight and virus resistant varieties of potatoes.
The newly released varieties of Sarpo Mira and Axona have unprecedented levels of blight resistance without the
necessity of chemical sprays. Sarpo is the first variety to score 9 out of 9 in commercial evaluations against blight.
The Savari trust, set up at University Farm Wales, Bangor, under the direction of Dr David Shaw, an acknowledged world blight expert who has worked on fungal disease for over 35, years have trialed and developed these potatoes for the Irish and British growers.
Sarpo has unprecedented blight resistance, high yields of tasty, floury tubers in a range of soil types, vigorous weed suppressing foliage and long storage. In tests, tubers do not appear to be affected by slugs.
A real all rounder for cooking.

Pleased with the Potatoes but disappointed that when I ordered A quantity of two packets I didn't get the discount for ordering 2
Love this potato ..sarpo mira..use it every year in our allotment and has never failed to give us more potatoes then we can eat whatever the weather
seeding arrived in excellent condition- just need the weather to be able to finish planting
I have the sarpo now for 4 years and they never got the blight they are a bit expensive but you don't have to spray them.And they are a very good storage potato.We find that the late main crop takes a long time to boil and are a bit to hard for my liking the early main crop is a good storage potato up to April
Excellent flavoured potatoe which developed no blight even in the wettest summer.
