Background

Chateau passed its selection as seedling AR 05-1443, arising from mother MA 98-0322 (sibling to the Mariska variety and father AR 98-0341 (sibling to the Rosagold breed). The cross was made in 2004 at Agrico Research, with the aim of selecting a variety for a market in which Agrico was not present at that time. The Chateau variety will mainly serve Western European consumers. In France, this variety has been included in the list of varieties with the qualification “Chair Ferme”, a great achievement.

The name Chateau indicates that this is a variety with which we aim to serve the top of the market. The high quality appearance combined with exceptional flavor and culinary properties combine to form a true delicacy for the potato lover.
