Range of varieties
The range of Dutch potato varieties comprises a wide selection of properties from which any potato grower anywhere in the world will be able to select a suitable variety for whatever soil type or climate. Before choosing the most suitable potato variety the potato grower will however have to answer a few questions. For example;

  • when is the growing season?
  • In what kind of soil will the potatoes be planted?
  • What climatic conditions prevail?
  • For what market are the potatoes intended?
  • Does the grower want a potato that matures early or late?
  • Are the potatoes intended for processing into crisps or chips or are they for local, fresh consumption?
  • If the potatoes are intended for export, on which export market will they be sold?
  • A market requiring a white-fleshed variety or a market with a demand for yellow-fleshed potatoes that have a firm texture when cooked?
  • Does the growing season agree with the genetic properties of the variety the grower intends to produce?
  • Will the harvested potatoes be stored?

All these and other questions will have to be answered before one or more suitable varieties can be selected. The Netherlands catalogue of potato varieties can support your selection.
