Excellent variety. Still good at end of Sept in the ground.
First time to grow Orla in 2019 and I found them excellent! Some blight later in the season but tubers remained unaffedten and still digging them now at the end of Sept. Delicious new potato. Not floury and do not break up when boiled. Review by Roisin C / (Posted on 29/09/2019)
