Tarzan

Tarzan is a medium late, high yielding economic variety with high to very high starch yield. Despite her maturity group, Tarzan shows a rapid and uniform foliage development. Their roundoval to oval tubers are suitable for surface storage due to their low susceptibility to fusarium. She shows a resistance against the nematodes globodera rostochiensis (Ro1- 5), insensitivity to PVY and resistance to potato wart disease race 1.
