Home Guard is the traditional first early potato grown in Ireland.
Dependable first early potato variety great for growing in potato sacks if you’re a new to potato-growing and want to give it a try. Produces short white-skinned oval tubers with cream floury -textured flesh.
A first-early variety, this is great to harvest with children. They love spotting the potatoes in the soil for digging up. Enjoy Home Guard for boiling, baking, mashing, roasting and chipping. Once you’ve grown Home Guard for the first time you’ll want to try them every year.
