SKU 05-1 Categories: ,


Smooth skin, flat eyes, delicate and exquisite potato taste characterize this variety.


Variety characteristic:

Tacja is a medium height plant with a compact canopy. Tacja sets the tubers high in the ridge. For that reason, deeper planting is recommended to avoid green tubers. Tacja produces an exceptionally large number of tubers. In a favorable year, it can produce up to 40 tubers pro plant. The tubers in the yield are uniform in size, middle sized, with a small number of undersizes. The outstanding attribute of this variety is an optical appearance. Extremely regular shape with very shallow eyes and extremely smooth skin make potatoes of this variety look great after packaging. A noteworthy feature is an increased resistance to common scab. The light sprout is delicate and may break off easily. For this reason, Tacja is not a good pre-sprouting variety.
