new_potato_variety_Baby_Lou

The Solana group, along with Den Hartigh, expands its product range by five new varieties. They are innovative, high yielding, and fulfil most customers’ needs and require­ments: varieties for table potatoes, as well as for the production of French fries and crisps (and dehy­drated potato products).

Three new varieties are to be launched into the fresh table market:

Prada is a very early variety, produ­cing high yields. It has ex­cellent results under plastic with a growth period of about 70 days and has pallida resistance. Prada is suitable for home fry production.

Baby Lou is a long-term storage variety. It is very tasty and is a variety destined to do well in the baby potato and salad market. It produces high numbers of tubers per root, and is very even in size.

Noya – a table variety with white flesh – is also suitable for long-term storage. It has high yields and new trial results suggest baker content will be high.

Being a multi­purpose variety Edison is suit­able for French fries, home fries, table potatoes including bakers, roasted potatoes. Even after long term storage it shows an excellent frying quality.

Rossini is a second early to early main­crop variety. It is suitable for crisps and mashed potatoes. Rossini has an out­standing resistance to nematodes and is also resistant to Rhizoctonia.
