When are potatoes in season?
Potatoes are typically in season in the UK from late spring to early autumn, the peak season for potatoes is usually during the summer months, from May to August.
However, potatoes can be stored for long periods of time, so they are available all year round. Potatoes are a hardy crop that can be grown in a variety of conditions, which means that they can be harvested at different times of the year, depending on where they are grown and the variety.
In the UK, there are several types of potatoes that are available depending on the season, for example, new potatoes, which are small and have a thin skin, are typically harvested between April and June. Second early potatoes, which are slightly larger and have a thicker skin, are typically harvested between June and July. Maincrop potatoes, which are larger and have a thicker skin, are typically harvested between August and October.
It's important to note that the specific harvest time for potatoes can vary depending on the weather and growing conditions.
