Botanical Features

Agricultural Features

High yielding variety, early sizing of tubers. Few tubers per hill with high percentage of large size. Due to the small number of eyes per tuber, it is recommended to plant whole tubers or 57g (2 ounces) seed pieces. Tubers set near soil surface; a good hill is required to prevent sunburn. Late season weed control can be a problem because the rows rarely close. Growth cracks may occur on heavy irrigated land. Well suited for areas where hollow heart or common scab are a problem.

Medium specific gravity. Good storability with very short dormancy. Produces better than average french fry colour from 7 °C storage.

Reaction to Diseases

Extremely resistant: common scab, hollow heart.
Very resistant: late blight.
Moderately resistant: verticillium wilt.
Susceptible: PVX, PVS, early blight.

Note : leaf roll symptoms appear late and on lower leaves only.
