Sensitivity and quality
Rudolph “the red-nosed reindeer” – who doesn't know him? Now not only the best-known reindeer on earth, but also a red-skinned Agrico potato variety. The potato has a red skin with deep red eyes, combined with the American white flesh color. This variety occupies a special position in the supply for the red-skinned market.
The parentage of the Rudolph variety is actually a little uncertain as the British breeder did not properly document all of the relevant parentage data. It is assumed that Rudolph is a cross between Chieftain and Stirling, but this is far from certain. In any case, the breed does display some resistance to late blight.
The best way to guarantee a good harvest and the best return on your investment is to start out with healthy, high-quality seed potatoes and expert advice. At Agrico, we are committed to and invest in knowledge and research. This has enabled us to cultivate a wide range of unique potato varieties that display effective resistance, strong variety characteristics and a high yield. Naturally, the seed potatoes we supply are fully certified.
