Botanical Features

Agricultural Features

High yielding variety producing 8 to 15 tubers per plant; susceptible to bruising due to high solids. Good harvesting and handling techniques are required. Plant spacing recommended is at 20 to 25 cm. Natural senescence of the vines may be adequate in many areas but vine killing is not difficult when required for storage. Short dormancy period (100 days); good storability (up to 7 months at 9°C (48°F)). High specific gravity.

Remark: sensitive to foliar Metribuzen when dosage is higher than 250 g/ha.

Reaction to Diseases

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