    Default Determinate & Indeterminate Potatoes.

    Is this an American thing? I've been doing a bit of trawling re tatties & came across this. Apparently a Determinate variety will crop all at the same time whereas an Indeterminate will crop over a longer period............it's new to me, what do you know about it?

    We probably don't get the chance for such a thing because of blight?

    Is this the same as our earlies and main crop under a different name?
    Just wondering.

    I get a bit confused over this, but I too think indeterminate are later varieties....these are better for growing in towers as they produce more spuds once the day length starts shortening?

    Are the earlies ( determinate) a newer variation ( selective breeding perhaps?) created since spuds were first brought to Europe?

    I may be waffling/dreaming this up....but some rusty cogs are at work in my brain somewhere...I can hear the clunking going on

    If so...^^^^^ scrap all that
