Early potato in southwest Finland is expected to be ready for harvesting during the midsummer week, according to a forecast of the Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners-MTK.

This means affordable Finnish grown early potato would be available on the table during the midsummer.
 
The early potato harvest is slightly late this year due to the cold spell during the spring.

The early potatoes will first be harvested in the archipelago, followed by southwest Finland. Harvesting is expected later elsewhere in the country.

Mikko Salovaara, the product manager at Ruokakesko said the availability of early potatoes at the moment is very poor.

“The fields are so wet due to rains that the potatoes are not able to rise just now. The availability will improve day by day,” said Salovaara.

According to Salovaara, the stock which corresponds to the demand will hit groceries during the midsummer week.

“The price level is slightly higher than that in the previous year. The price will drop when their availability improves and the volume grows,” Salovaara added.
