Variety characteristic:

Michalina is characterized by a very rapid foliage development, resulting in dense foliage. Due to the extremely strong root system, it is suitable for cultivation on sandy soils. This variety tolerates periodic water shortages, thus gaining a real advantage over other varieties. Even in the years with drought, a satisfactory yield can be obtained. Michalina is known for a high yield of big sized tubers set deep in the ridge. The outstanding attribute of this variety is its a pronounced taste. Our favourite flavor variety has won many trophies in culinary competitions for consumers. It has a good appearance with shallow eyes, yellow skin and light yellow flesh, which is ideal for pre-packing market. Due to the short period of dormancy of tubers and quite early sprout stimulation, it is recommended to store it in a controlled atmosphere or to sale the tuber seeds in late autumn.
