Variety used for comparison: 'Bintje'

Summary: The proportion of blue in anthocyanin colouration of the base on the lightsprout of 'Jazzy' is absent or low whereas it is high on 'Bintje'. The tip of the lightsprout for 'Jazzy' is closed with sparse pubescence and a medium number of root tips whereas it is open with medium pubescence and few root tips for 'Bintje'. The extent of anthocyanin colouration on the stem of 'Jazzy' is absent or very low at the base only while it is low to medium along the entire stem for 'Bentje'. There is an absent or very low frequency of flowers on the plant of 'Jazzy' while there is a medium frequency of flowers on the plant of 'Bintje'. The plant of 'Jazzy' matures early to mid- season while 'Bintje' matures late.

Origin & Breeding History: The origin of 'Jazzy' (experimental designation CMK2001-069-056) is the result of the cross made in 1998 between 'Franceline' as the female parent and 'Cupido' as the male parent at the C. Meijer B.V. Breeding Station in Rilland, The Netherlands. Selection criteria were yield, tuber appearance, storability and disease resistance.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials for 'Jazzy' were conducted during the 2012 growing season in Drummond, New Brunswick. Each plot per variety consisted of 60 plants grown in a single row with a row length of 18.5 metres and a row spacing of 0.9 metres between rows. Plants were spaced 0.30 metres apart.
