How to avoid scab? By growing scab-resistant Potatoes

Scab looks nasty but potatoes with scab can be eaten. However some varieties are more scab resistant than others. The information is there for each variety under a tab towards the foot of each product page under description. All our disease results are from independent trials by Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

The advice on the RHS site on how to avoid and identify scab is a fantastic resource. They recommend choosing varieties that are scab resistant and we have several of their recommendations. Remember that no variety will have 100% resistance. It is also worth asking neighbours or fellow allotment growers at your plot for their recommendations as anecdotal evidence may carry weight locally.
