Background

The PK 06-108, Paradiso’s seeding number, is a cross between two existing varieties. The mother variety, Rodeo, is a descendant of the variety Mondial, which originates from Spunta. The father plant, Valor, originates from the Irish variety Cara. This origin suggests that Paradiso has good yield potential. In addition, the positive traits of a long tuber shape and a clear skin are combined in this variety.

The variety has already been introduced in several North African, South and East European countries. The results from the last two seasons show that the Paradiso is included in the list of varieties where yield security, along with high yields under all conditions, remain the most important traits.
