Blight resistant potatoes

Tony Brown asked 14 years ago
I believe there are blight-resistant potatoes now that you do not have to spray for blight. Do you have any names? And where would I get these?

Yes, there are some exciting varieties that have arrived on the market in recent years. A good early variety, bred in Ireland, with good resistance is ‘Orla’. ‘Cara’ has some resistance too, and the Sarpo varieties, ‘Mira’ and ‘Axona’ are exceptionally good. Mr Middleton in Dublin stocks these.
