Botanical Features

Agricultural Features

High yielding variety of attractive round tubers; very susceptible to hollow heart. Irrigation may reduce hollow heart incidence. Plant spacing recommended is at 25 to 30 cm. Natural senescence of the vines may be adequate in many areas but vine killing is not difficult when required for storage. Medium dormancy period (120 days); good storability (9 months). Very high specific gravity.

Remark: store at 13°C (55°F) until chip colour and defect levels are low; then lower temperature to 9°C (48°F).

Reaction to Diseases

Highly resistant: storage rots.
Moderately resistant: common scab (may develop pits in heavy infestation), verticillium wilt.
Moderately susceptible: late blight, early blight.
