Rosara potatoes: description and nuances of growing

 Rosara potatoes: description and nuances of growing

Potatoes have long and firmly entered the diet of Russians, earning the respectful nickname "second bread". With very rare exceptions, almost all gardeners grow this crop on their backyards. Since breeding is constantly evolving, it is very difficult to choose the ideal variety. Most often, they are guided by yield, taste, the ability to bear fruit in certain climatic and natural conditions, and undemanding care. By all the above criteria, the Rosara variety deserves attention, which is often preferred by both those who grow potatoes for themselves and those who cultivate it on an industrial scale.

Rosara potatoes: description of the variety, characteristics with photos

Rosara is a German-bred potato variety. The originator is a firm with a hard-to-pronounce name Saka Pflanzenzucht GBR. It was bred in the 90s of the XX century, and since then, despite constant competition from more and more new varieties, it has enjoyed steady popularity, and not only in Russia, but throughout the world. Domestic gardeners got to know him after Rosara was included in the State Register in 1996.

Rosara - a variety of German selection, popular all over the world

The creators managed to protect the variety from many common and dangerous fungal and viral diseases for potatoes. Also, Rosara, in principle, is not affected by such a dangerous pest as a nematode, having an "innate" immunity.

Rosara's flowers are purple, with a bright yellow corolla

Rozara bushes are not tall (50–55 cm), but spreading. The flowers are pinkish lilac. The harvest ripens in 65–75 days (from the moment the first shoots appear). The variety belongs to the category of early ripening. When planting in the ground at the end of May, the potatoes can be dug up in the second decade of August. At this time, it is much more likely that the weather will not be cloudy, cool and rainy.

Rosara bushes are not tall, although you cannot call them compact

On average, one bush produces 17–20 potatoes of almost the same size. But there are also record-breaking plants that bring 25 tubers or more.

The skin of potatoes is reddish-pink, sometimes almost crimson, very thin, with small and few superficial eyes. It is to this bright shade that Rosara owes its name. It is slightly rough to the touch. The pulp is yellowish, a shade of butter. Potatoes have a characteristic teardrop shape, which makes Rosaru easy to distinguish from other varieties.

Almost all of Rosara's tubers are about the same size and shape.

The tubers themselves seem to be calibrated, small and deformed are quite rare. The average weight of one potato is 110-130 g, individual specimens can weigh about 150 g.

The merits and demerits of culture

Among the undoubted advantages of the variety, to which Rosara owes her popularity among gardeners, the following can be noted:

  • The presence of genetically determined immunity against such dangerous diseases as late blight of tubers, potato cancer, scab, as well as against nematodes.
  • The ability to adapt to a wide range of climatic and natural conditions that cannot always be described by the word "ideal". Rosaru in Russia is cultivated not only in warm southern regions, but almost everywhere, with the exception of areas with arctic and subarctic climates. The variety is not very sensitive to drought, waterlogging, heat, lack of sunlight and heat.
  • Early maturity. This is especially true for gardeners in the Urals and Siberia, where summer does not always come in accordance with the calendar and often lasts a little less than we would like.Tubers in varieties with a longer ripening period often simply do not have time to form.
  • Consistently high yield combined with unpretentious care. Even those gardeners who have a habit of forgetting about tubers after planting tubers may well rely on about 300 kg of potatoes from 100 m². With minimal maintenance and the presence of fertile soil, the yield increases to 350-400 kg per hundred square meters. If you devote enough time and energy to potatoes, you can raise it up to 500 kg from 100 m².
  • Preservation of the quality of tubers for 5–6 years using our own planting material. Rosar does not need to be renewed every 2-3 years - and this is a significant savings.
  • Presentable appearance of tubers. More than 90% of potatoes have a presentation. Together with good keeping quality and the ability to carry transportation over long distances, this makes the variety interesting not only for amateur gardeners, but also for farms.
  • Versatility of appointment. Rosara's pulp contains only 12-16% starch. Thanks to this, tubers and individual pieces do not lose their shape during heat treatment, the pulp does not crumble and does not turn into an unappetizing watery porridge. Also Rosara is suitable for drying. Most often it is used for soups, stewing, baking, and added to salads.
  • Taste qualities. Professional tasters give Rosara a 4+ out of five.

One of the main advantages of Rosara is its high yield.

Not without some flaws, which, however, do not spoil the overall picture:

  • Spreading of bushes. Shoots will nip very early, which creates certain difficulties in caring for plantings, especially when hilling.
  • Relatively low resistance to late blight of tops.
  • The variety is not very good for frying.

Rosara can become infected with late blight of potato tops; special attention should be paid to the prevention of this disease.

Growing tubers from seeds

Despite the fact that the quality of the Rosara potato variety, including taste and yield, is preserved when using a vegetative propagation method for five to six years, over time the soil depletes, spores of pathogenic fungi accumulate in it. It is impossible to maintain the quality of tubers and yield at the same level, even with proper care. Of course, you can buy new ones in a specialized store, but there mini-tubers of the "super elite" and "elite" categories are quite expensive. This is especially felt if you have to immediately change all the planting material.

There is also an alternative - getting tubers from seeds on your own. The process stretches over two years, so you need to take care of updating the planting material in advance.

Home-grown mini-tubers vary greatly in color, shape and size - this is a characteristic feature of potatoes.

Other advantages of the method, in addition to its low cost, include:

  • Confidence in the quality of potatoes. A gardener who buys it in a store or on the market, in very rare cases, can identify the specific variety he needs, as well as distinguish between the real elite and the super elite and ordinary small potatoes.
  • Preservation of seed germination for 6-10 years. Still, it is not recommended to delay landing for so long. The best germination is demonstrated by those that are not older than 2-3 years.
  • Seeds and self-grown mini-tubers do not require special storage conditions and take up much less space than “traditional” planting material.
  • Higher productivity. Statistics show that the indicators are increasing by 10-25%. This is strongly influenced by the climate in a particular region.
  • Absence of common diseases dangerous to the plant. Seeds and tubers do not "inherit" the diseases that affected the potato bush itself.

There are also certain disadvantages:

  • Low percentage of seed germination. They will have to be prepared with a margin.
  • Capriciousness and fragility of seedlings. Potato seedlings are "capricious" and finicky than their "relatives" from the Solanov family.With a lack of light, they stretch sharply. It is also very easy to damage them when diving due to the fragility of the root system.
  • The need to fight disease. In particular, seedlings often suffer from blacklegs.
  • A lot of time passes between the emergence of seedlings and transplantation into the garden. For almost two months, the seedlings have time to stretch up to 15-17 cm in height. Since they do not have a strong stem, like, for example, tomatoes, the seedlings are often confused, the shoots are deformed, and numb. It is quite difficult to unravel them. This creates particular difficulties in transportation.
  • Duration of the process. It will not be possible to grow a crop from seeds in the first year. First you need to remove the mini tubers.

Seed potatoes are an opportunity to cultivate a truly unique variety, perfect for the area. The tubers harvested in the first year will vary greatly in size, color, shape. The gardener's task is to select the best of them, focusing on independently defined criteria.

Growing potatoes from seeds in the open field is possible only in regions with a warm subtropical climate. Those who live throughout the rest of Russia first need to get seedlings. Potatoes for seedlings are planted in the first decade or closer to mid-March.

The procedure is as follows:

  1. Collect the fruits of the potatoes (they resemble small green tomatoes). Let them mature by hanging them in a gauze or linen bag where they will be exposed to direct sunlight. When they are wrinkled and softened, separate the seeds from the pulp and let them dry. After that, fill them with a solution of crimson potassium permanganate for about a quarter of an hour, dry them again and put them away where they will be stored until spring, pouring them into hermetically sealed glass containers, paper or plastic bags with a reusable fastener.
  2. Start seed treatment a week or a half before planting. At night they are put in the refrigerator, during the day they are placed in a warm place. Suitable, for example, a window sill illuminated by the sun, a heating battery.
  3. Wrap the potato seeds in a wet thin cloth or cheesecloth and wait for the sprouts to appear.
  4. Prepare a suitable substrate - light but nutritious. You can use a ready-made store-bought substrate for seedlings with the addition of Nitrofoska (2-3 g / l) or a mixture of turf, ordinary garden soil, coarse river sand and peat chips (2: 3: 1: 0.5).
  5. Soak the seeds in a solution of any biostimulant (Epin, Kornevin, Heteroauxin) 30-40 minutes before planting.
  6. Fill small flat containers with sterilized soil and flatten it. Moisturize in moderation.
  7. Plant several seeds at intervals of 4–7 cm. The spacing between rows is 8–10 cm. Fill them with a thin (1.5–2 mm) layer of fine sand on top, compact it very carefully. Cover the container with glass or transparent film.
  8. Provide seeds with a temperature of at least 25 ° C, bright light. Underfloor heating is also desirable. Open the greenhouse daily for 5-7 minutes to ventilate.
  9. The first shoots will appear in a week and a half, massive ones - in another 3–6 days. When two true leaves grow, carefully plant the seedlings in individual pots 5–7 cm in diameter, preferably peat pots. Be careful, it is very easy to damage them.
  10. When the plants take root and a new leaf begins to form (on average, 7–8 days after transplanting), feed the seedlings by spraying them with a fertilizer solution containing nitrogen (2–3 g / l).
  11. One and a half two weeks before the planned transplant in the garden, begin to harden the plants, during the day moving them to the loggia, veranda, or garden. Extend your outdoor period gradually.

Seedlings that have reached a height of 16–22 cm and have 5–6 true leaves are planted in the ground no earlier than the soil at a depth of 8–10 cm warms up to 10–12 ° C. A reliable landmark is dandelions, lilacs, bird cherry trees that have begun to bloom. Usually this is the 20th of May.

"Black leg" is a dangerous disease that can destroy future crops already at the seedling stage

When planting, 20-25 cm are left between the plants, about 30 cm between the rows of plantings. Add a handful of humus, a little onion husk and sifted wood ash to the holes. The seedlings are carefully laid on one side together with the pot (if it is peat) and sprinkled with earth so that only real leaves are visible. The depth of the hole ranges from 4–5 cm to 8–10 cm. The "heavier" the soil, the smaller it becomes. Then, it is advisable to install low arcs above the beds and pull any breathable covering material over them.

Caring for plants during the summer is not much different from growing regular potatoes. It is weeded, spud, watered and fed in the same way.

The tubers are dug out at the end of August or at the very beginning of autumn. Most tubers weigh 15–40 g. But potatoes the size of a nail or even a pea should be discarded immediately. The collected tubers are thoroughly washed, dried and stored in a dry, dark, cool place. In the spring they are planted like regular potatoes.

Important nuances of growing

Many gardeners do not pay enough attention to potatoes. It is believed that you can forget about the planted tubers until the time comes to harvest. But this is by no means the case. Like other horticultural crops, potatoes need to be cared for. To regularly receive bountiful harvests, he will have to devote a lot of time and effort.

Seat selection

The place for potatoes on the site is most often allotted according to the residual principle. But he (and the Rosar variety is no exception) loves warmth and sunshine. It is advisable to choose an open place for it, at some distance from which there is a natural or artificial barrier that protects it from gusts of cold wind. The lowlands, in which melt water and moist cold air stagnate for a long time, are categorically not suitable for Rozara.

The highest possible yields can only be obtained in the right soil. The soil should be nutritious, but at the same time light and loose, well permeable to air and water. Fertile loam, gray soil or sandy loam substrate is well suited for Rosara. Be sure to find out the acid-base balance in advance. Potatoes absolutely do not tolerate acidified soils.

In the same place, Rosar is grown for no more than 3-4 years. If the place on which the potatoes will be planted next year is known in advance, you can prepare the bed by planting green manure plants that improve the quality of the soil. Rosara grows well after flax, lupine, vetch, clover, any legumes. Of vegetable crops, good predecessors are cucumbers, pumpkins, corn, all types of cabbage. It is not recommended to plant potatoes where other Solanaceae and sunflowers grew. Plants from the same family suffer from similar diseases.

Green manure plants, for example, clover, loosen the soil, saturate it with oxygen, useful micro- and macroelements

To harvest before everyone else, you need to plant the tubers in mid-spring. But in most of the territory of Russia, the soil does not have time to warm up enough by this time. You can "help" him by spilling the bed with boiling water and tightening it with black plastic wrap for several days.

Preparing tubers for planting

Germination of tubers allows you to shorten the already short growing season of Rosary by another 7–12 days. After the growth buds come to life, it is advisable to cover the tubers with wet sawdust, creating a layer 3-4 cm thick. As they dry, they are sprayed, but not with plain water, but with a solution of any biostimulant. The most suitable drugs for Rosara are Mikon, Epin, Heteroauxin.

Sprouting tubers allows you to harvest a week and a half earlier than planned

12-15 days before planting in the ground, the tubers are taken out in the sun so that the skin acquires a greenish tint.It becomes more durable, resistant to possible attacks of pests. The yield after such a procedure increases by 10-15%.

Greening tubers increases their resistance to disease and pest attacks

Care advice

Rosara potatoes are not least appreciated for their overall unpretentiousness. Accordingly, caring for him will not take much time.

An important component of agricultural technology is the application of fertilizers. Rosara needs more phosphorus and potassium than nitrogen. Also, any potato does not like chlorine very much. Therefore, potassium chloride, for example, is excluded. On the contrary, plants respond very positively to the introduction of natural organic matter - humus, rotted compost, wood ash. But you shouldn't get carried away with fertilizers either. If the bed was prepared correctly, three additional fertilizing per season is enough - during the first hilling, after flowering and after another 20-25 days.

Rosara responds well to feeding with any natural fertilizers

The bed must be kept presentable by weeding it regularly. Mulching the furrows with freshly cut grass and straw will help save time on weeding. Correct loosening is equally important. Ideally, this should be done every time it rains. A mandatory procedure for any potato is hilling. The first time it is carried out when the tops, which have grown to 15–18 cm, begin to close into a solid green carpet, the second - 12–15 days after that. In the heat, the dates are slightly shifted - this weather prevents the growth of bushes, they form more slowly.

Rosar's potatoes are prized by gardeners and farmers for their ease of maintenance, but they also need hilling

If the summer is dry, the potatoes are watered. It especially needs moisture during flowering. The best way is sprinkling or drip irrigation. But it's important not to overdo it. In a bed turned into a swamp, the tubers are likely to rot. For each plant, 3-5 liters of water are consumed.

A good watering method for potatoes is sprinkling that imitates natural precipitation; the soil should be soaked 20-25 cm deep

The main pest that threatens Rosar, which has a genetically built immunity against the nematode, is the well-known Colorado potato beetle. You can fight it both with the help of insecticides and folk methods. One has only to remember that the use of chemicals is excluded 25 days before the expected harvest and is limited during budding and flowering.

It is recommended to mow the tops 1.5–2 weeks before the expiration of the growing season. This will help the Rosara's tubers to form completely. There is also another method to increase yields. Shoots that have reached a height of 20–25 cm are broken at a distance of 10–12 cm from the ground so that they do not dry out, but do not straighten up. Thus, the nutrients, having reached the break point, "unfold" and are sent to the tubers.

Harvesting and storage

It is no less important than getting a bountiful harvest to preserve it. In general, early potato varieties do not differ in keeping quality. Rosara, however, is a rare and pleasant exception. During storage, no more than 7–9% of tubers deteriorate. Under ideal conditions (dry cellar, in which a constant temperature of 2–4 ° C is maintained), no more than 1–2% of potatoes lose their presentation. Rosara's yields are always excellent, no matter how warm and sunny the summer is.

Rosara's tubers are about the same size, there are very few small ones

Rosar's potatoes - description

Rosara was developed by Saka Pflanzenzucht back in the 90s. Then he made quite a powerful competition to other varieties of potatoes, and does not give up its positions to this day. It was registered in Russia in 1996.

Breeders were able to protect Rosara from the most common "potato" diseases and pests. For example, this potato will not get sick with a nematode, as it has “built-in immunity”.

Characteristics of the variety

The bushes of the variety are low and rather "lush" - about 50 cm. Color - pink with a shade of lilac. The first crop can be harvested 70 days after the first shoots appear.

Rosara refers to early ripening potatoes. So, after planting it in May, the first fruits can be harvested in August. One bush gives an average yield of 18 potatoes. But, there are plants that produce 25 or more tubers.

The peel of Rosara is almost crimson, thin, small eyes are visible on the surface. The plant got its name precisely because of such an unusual color. Pink potatoes are common.

The pulp of the fruit has the color of butter, the shape resembles a drop. This is the main difference between the variety and others. The tubers are even, have an average weight of 100-140 g, but there are also larger ones - up to 150 g.

Taste qualities of the variety

The variety is quite tasty, and on a 5-point scale it can be “set” to a solid 4. It is best to cook or fry rosara, since it practically does not boil over, and with such processing it does not lose its taste.


Growing features

There are no big differences from other varieties in the cultivation of Rosary. It is undesirable to plant it in areas where vegetables from the Solanovy family were placed last year. It is not recommended to place potatoes over potatoes, so as not to create favorable conditions for the development of diseases.

Preparatory pre-planting activities

The preparation of seed material begins 30 days before the expected day of planting. The following works are carried out:

  1. potatoes are removed from storage sites
  2. bulkhead tubers
  3. potatoes with spots and injuries are discarded
  4. it is advisable to immerse seed tubers for a short time in a solution of potassium permanganate for disinfection
  5. potatoes are laid out in a single layer in a bright, warm room for drying, germination
  6. the appearance of shoots 1 cm in size is a signal for planting.

Soil requirements

The potato planting site is prepared in the fall. Rotted manure is scattered on it, at the rate of 8 kg per 1 m², dug up with a shovel.

A few days before planting potatoes in the spring, the site is dug up again. For spring digging, ash can be added to deoxidize the soil.

Timing, scheme and depth of planting

Since Rosara does not tolerate spring frosts, planting dates must be clearly verified. The soil should warm up by at least +12 degrees.

Planting is carried out according to the scheme 60 by 30 cm.The optimal planting depth of seed tubers is 10 cm.

Attention! In Siberia and other cold regions with a shortened summer, planting begins when the soil warms up to +5 degrees.After planting, the ridges are covered with a layer of straw or sawdust.

How to properly care for the variety

The cultivation technology of Rosary does not differ from traditional early-ripening varieties, it consists of the following activities:

  1. Irrigation. Rosara is highly drought tolerant. Even if the summer turned out to be dry, in order to grow a decent harvest, 3-4 waterings are enough. Rosara's moisture consumption peaks during the flowering phase.

Important! One and a half weeks before cleaning, activities to moisten the site must be stopped. Otherwise, the potatoes are poorly stored.

  1. Fertilizer system. If in the fall, for digging, fertilizer was applied in the recommended amount, the need for vegetative fertilizing disappears. However, it happens that the tops look depleted, the leaves become smaller. Then it is recommended to make a herbal infusion, add ash to it at the rate of 1 glass per bucket of infusion, and water the plantation.
  1. Hilling and weeding. After waiting for the potato shoots to reach a height of 18 cm, proceed to the first hilling. Then hilling is repeated several more times with an interval of 10 days.
  1. Harvesting and storage of crops... Rosara's tubers are well preserved. Cleaning should be started when such conditions occur:
    • the potato skin is firm and does not peel off
    • potato tops turned yellow, dried out
    • in an iodine solution, the cut potatoes immediately turn purple.

Potato varieties with a short ripening period have always been of interest to gardeners, especially those who live in regions where the summer is short. For such areas, the Rosara variety was bred. Growing such potatoes will not be difficult, even an inexperienced summer resident can handle this.

Initially, the Rosara variety was intended for cultivation in the Middle Volga and Central Black Earth regions, although, as practice shows, the culture adapts well to different climatic conditions. Rosara is classified as an unpretentious variety, but for high yields, attention must be paid to all aspects.

The first step is to properly prepare the soil. Best of all, the plant perceives light sandy loam and loamy soils. Ideally, the soil should have a uniform structure without coarse lumps in order to retain the required amount of water and prevent waterlogging. Potatoes grow better on soils after legumes, pumpkin seeds, corn, cucumbers and cabbage. It is not recommended to plant Rosara in areas after sunflower, sorghum and nightshade crops (tomatoes, eggplants, bell peppers).

Potatoes are a light-loving plant, so choose a well-lit area. Before planting seed tubers of the Rosara variety, the soil must be fertilized. In autumn, it is recommended to apply manure or compost, phosphorus and potassium. Nitrogen fertilization should be applied in early spring. It is important to prevent overcooling of the seeds, therefore, the soil is pre-insulated, especially in cold regions. At the beginning of spring, you need to remove a layer of snow from the area for potatoes. After a while, you can start watering with warm water and cover the soil with a black film.

For growing, you need Rosara tubers weighing from 30 grams. Pay attention to their condition. In no case take rotten and spoiled fruits. Germination begins in early March. To do this, the tubers are taken out of the basement into a bright room with a temperature of 15-18 ° C. 2 weeks before planting, the germinated seeds are returned to the cellar with a temperature of 4-6 ° C for hardening. For planting, select tubers with thick sprouts. The filamentous sprouts can be damaged. Large potatoes are allowed to be halved.

As for the description of the planting process itself, then first you need to plow the ground to a depth of at least 20 centimeters. The holes are made about 10 centimeters deep. The distance between the pits in a row is 40 centimeters. The row spacing should not be less than 65 centimeters. For best results, a small amount of wood ash mixed with eggshells is poured onto the bottom of the hole.Upon completion of planting, the site is watered abundantly.

Further care begins even before the germination of the first sunrises. You need to loosen the soil and remove weeds in time. The variety needs moderate watering, otherwise you risk getting rotten tubers. Hilling is carried out at least 2 times during the entire growth cycle. In dry weather, the Roser variety requires up to 5 liters of water for 1 adult bush. According to the description of experienced gardeners, hilling does not need to be carried out in hot periods if the stems do not grow anyway.

I think, since you are here, then you are one of those who do not want to waste time experimenting and immediately acquire the best, delicious varieties of seed potatoes, the most productive and resistant to diseases.

I will try to indicate all the characteristics of the variety by which one can judge a given potato and draw a conclusion - to plant or not.

We took into account the reviews of gardeners from different regions about potato varieties and selected the main, most common varieties with positive responses at the end of 2018.

An early high-yielding potato variety. The tubers are round-oval in shape and yellow, the flesh is yellow or dark yellow, the eyes are small. Ripening period 75-80 days. The mass of each tuber at maturity is 100-140 grams.

Gala potatoes are valued for their high marketability of tubers, resistance to mechanical damage, excellent taste and keeping quality during winter storage. The variety is resistant to potato nematode, cancer, scab, moderately resistant to late blight of tops.

When growing this variety, it is recommended to mow the tops 10-12 days before harvesting.

An early high-yielding variety of white potatoes. Its bush is high, up to 75 cm, forms 4-5 stems, white flowers. Impala potato tubers are yellow, oval, small eyes, smooth peel, light yellow flesh.

The variety is resistant to cancer, potato nematode, susceptible to late blight and rhizoctonia disease, slightly affected by viral diseases and common scab. The period from germination to technical ripeness is 70-75 days.

Impala potatoes are valued for their early maturity, high productivity, presentation and excellent taste of tubers.

This is an early, very productive potato of Dutch selection. In terms of yield, it surpasses many well-known varieties.

The bush is about 70 cm high, forms 7-8 stems, the flowers are red-purple. Tubers are elongated-oval with a smooth red skin, yellow pulp and small eyes. There are usually 20 or more tubers in the nest, each weighing 80-85 grams.

The Scarlet potato variety is resistant to late blight, cancer, and leaf curling. It tolerates drought well and is therefore suitable for growing in very hot climates. Ripening period is about 75 days.

When boiling, potatoes of this variety do not fall apart, preserving the appearance of the tubers. It does not darken during cutting, which is typical for many other varieties. Tubers keep well in winter.

Scarlet variety is resistant to the most famous viral diseases, but weakly resistant to common scab. The variety is sensitive to late blight of foliage, but at the same time it is resistant to late blight of tubers, which is more important.

This is a Siberian mid-season large-fruited variety of Kemerovo selection. The Tuleyevsky variety is valued for its excellent taste, it is believed that it has no equal. It even surpassed the well-known Adretta variety, although it looks very similar. True, Adretta is a little smaller, on average it is about the size of a fist.

The study of nature shows how simple and natural the laws that it follows are. - Arthur Schopenhauer

Yes, there are a lot of them here in the article. I have just read about most of them. Of course, this is all due to the fact that in our city 1-2 varieties are constantly imported from the region, so about some specials. varieties do not need to think. Unless only from gardeners you can find something unusual, who specifically buy them and go after them. The early Riviera variety is imported as standard, these potatoes are just bulk. Yes, it does not lie for long, at most until October, and then it starts to deteriorate. Most often it is young and I eat the first one. At my dacha, I constantly use Aurora soot, this is the best choice for planting, it is also stored for a long time. From the late one I have Zhuravinka, you need to wait for her very long, careful care so that the king does not gobble up. They have not yet mentioned such a variety in the article - Gypsy, I once tried it with a friend, potatoes of medium size, oblong, tubers are red in color, yellow inside. It is also medium late, bears fruit well and is preserved. And, by the way, very tasty.

Wow, how many varieties are described here))) Potatoes are generally my favorite product and I can eat them in any cooked form. But of all the varieties that are listed in the article, I recognized only Sineglazka, Bella Rosa and Slavyanka. These are the three main varieties that I planted in my garden, or rather helped my parents the way they manage garden affairs in the village. By the way, I noticed that these varieties are very different from each other, and this is especially evident during the preparation of a potato dish. For example, blue-eyed in general, in my opinion, is not suitable for frying, it is very soft in structure and literally crumbles at the moment of frying, but very well suited for mashed potatoes or potato pancakes. But the Slav and Bella with a rose, on the contrary, are great for frying, I even made chips from them twice)))

I am a conservative at heart and rarely change my taste preferences. So it is with potatoes.About twelve years ago, my relatives started experimenting with potato varieties and I was attracted. As a result, I was very unhappy, as I have always been a fan of the Nevsky variety. Although this variety of potatoes was considered fodder, it gave a good harvest and was pleasant to eat in almost any form. He loved fried potatoes and cooked them almost every other day. Now I grow some kind of glass potato and I don't even know what it's called. In soup, these potatoes are not very pleasant, as well as in boiled form. Increasingly I am inclined to return to the “Nevsky” variety again. I live in a temperate climate and I think that the variety has not yet been bred better in taste and in the level of fertility in my area. At least I was completely satisfied with this variety in these parameters.

I was looking for new interesting potato varieties - I came across this selection. Helpful. Especially for those who are just starting to deal with potatoes. Alas, it is difficult for me to choose varieties of potatoes, like other root crops - the area is shaded, the soil is often wet. Therefore, for me one of the most important qualities is resistance to rot. I found a couple of options here that I have not tried yet, let's see what happens. But it would be more convenient if, according to this indicator, varieties were also brought together in a single list, as in terms of drought resistance. And then while you study that potato encyclopedia - the planting season will end)))
Unusual varieties were also very interested. I'll have to experiment. Of course, I will not risk it right away, but I will plant two or three bushes for testing.

I live in an arid climate, so I haven't seen rich harvests for a long time. I planted two buckets of potatoes, dug three buckets of root vegetables. This is approximately what my process of growing this vegetable looked like. I tried all kinds of fertilizers, experimented with different types of irrigation, from irrigation to drip moistening of the soil, mulched the ground, pruned bushes, tried double hilling, grown on straw, changed the planting depth, but all to no avail. Once I met a school friend (lives in my city) and he boasted to me about his potato crop. I was amazed at the result. After all, we have the same soil, and the results are radically different. As a result, he admitted that he grows only Bellarose and only this variety in our region gives good yields. Naturally, I bought several buckets of planting material from him and planted everything in the spring. In the fall, I was overwhelmed by the harvest. Almost a bucket from one bush, which is a fantastic result. The variety is simply the leader in yield. True, the planting material must be renewed otherwise the yield will fall every year.

I could not even think that there is such a variety of potato varieties. For example, we have a lot of potato varieties, but I do not know the information separately for each variety. I only know about belarose, which bears fruit very well in our country and the potatoes have excellent taste and yield a large harvest. There is also a very large number of the Slavianka variety, I will not say anything about its yield, but this is considered a fodder variety, it is very large, but it has poor taste, so it can only be fried. I want to withdraw this variety completely and plant another one. But a lot depends on weather conditions and fertilizers, and here, of course, you can't guess what kind of harvest you will harvest at the end of summer. From the article I learned that potatoes need to be completely renewed every three years, unfortunately we did not know about this. Therefore, I think next year in the spring, we will definitely buy good varieties of potatoes and at the same time update, so the harvest will be much better. I like potato varieties very much. which are yellow inside, the mashed potatoes are excellent. I liked the Accent variety very much, I think I'll bet on it.

I want to find a variety that looks like early maturation or red nosed
