It stands out for its excellent taste and intense yellow flesh.


Variety characteristic:

Astana is a plant of medium height, displaying compact canopy. This variety tolerates periodic water shortages. In years with optimal rainfall, it forms a very high marketable yield. In dry years, it sets a yield above the reference variety. Due to the medium susceptibility to common scab, it is recommended to choose soils with a low risk of actinomycetes of the genus Streptomyces. Tasty Astana is our culinary star. Their advantage is high yield potential and uniformly intense yellow flesh. In 2021, it was appreciated by consumers with first place in the culinary competition for the tastiest potato variety at the XXVIII National Potato Days. Astana is a variety that does not cause difficulties during long-term storage and retains its taste until late spring.
