Nicola is a dream potato for the amateur gardener.
Excellent steamed/boiled and served hot or cold in salads. Bred in the early 1970s Nicola is a relatively new salad type - perfect for eating with the skins on. Beautiful thin smooth skin they have too, very clean looking spud.
Nicola is also a top Christmas growing variety. Plant the seed potatoes in August and you will be harvesting fully grown potatoes from late October to December.
Nicola is a second early potato with well-shaped oval potatoes. The skin is thin and very light brown with cream coloured flesh. It's one of the best tasting new potatoes and is superb hot or cold. Keeps well in the ground for a month or so longer. Reasonably good disease resistance overall, unfortunately it is susceptible to blight.

"They look a bit exotic, which of course they are, but the taste is simply superb. I know they always say they are splendid when roasted but for my money they are best gently steamed till the psychological moment of perfectly cooked. Then you get the full floury tastiness of roasted chestnut and you wish you had cooked twice as many."
"Have just removed my first batch of "Gold" from my Allotment.
I planted them out the second week of March after Chitting them on the windowsill.
From 1 seed Potato, i have harvested 3lb of Gold.
Had roast Potatoes with my Dinner and a good portion of Chips at supper time.
Well worth the money, and the taste is just fantastic.
So glad i got my order in early."
