• Fairly strong, upright, develops quite rapidly to a medium height. Usually a low number of haulms per tuber, with good leaf coverage.
  • Few pure white flowers.
  • Oval-oblong to pear-shaped with shallow eyes. Skin and flesh are white
    Agronomical Properties
    Growing period: Short (70 to 90 days).
    Average yield potential. Low yield potential under dryland cultivation
    (particularly with water stress at the beginning of the growing season).
    Tuber size distribution:
    Mostly medium and large, with a low percentage of small tubers, even under
    Unfavourable conditions.
    Tuber appearance: Regular. Tuber malformation does occur under unfavourable conditions (heat
    and/or water stress), but secondary growth very seldom occurs.
    Tuber dormancy: Long (90 to 110 days). Dormancy of progeny tubers is shortened with periods
    of heat and/or water stress during the growing season.
    Sensitive to cold soil, not suitable for winter and early spring plantings, except
    in areas with warmer winter months (Northern Province and Parts of Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal.

    Consumer Properties
    Eating quality: Very good. Firm cooking type which does not slough or discolour after cooking.
    Processing quality:
    Suitable for processing. Average to low relative density (SG) and low reducing
    sugar content.
    Keeping quality:
    Very good under all cultivation conditions. Quality deteriorates very gradually,
    Allowing storage of tubers directly in the soil or in cold storage for long periods.

    Late blight: Moderate resistance.
    Early blight:
    Moderately susceptible.
    Virus diseases:
    Moderate field resistance to leaf roll and mosaic virus.
    Common scab: Susceptible.
    Fusarium dry rot: Susceptible.
    Fusarium wilt:
    Very susceptible.
    Physiological disorders:
    Internal brown spot and hallow heart seldom occur, even under unfavourable
    growing conditions
