Spud Lite is a potato variety that has come from natural cross pollination without any genetic modification. The growing period is 20 – 30% shorter than most other varieties, which means it needs less maintenance and feeding. It has also consistently shown that it has a longer shelf life than many other popular potato varieties – meaning less greening and less wastage.
