SKU 07-1 Categories: ,


Excellent results 40 days after emergence, exceptionally big sized, uniform, well-shaped, tasty tubers. In 2019-2022, a yield of 104% compared to the standard variety in the early harvest period was achieved.


Variety characteristic:

Werbena is a very early ware variety destinated for a very early harvest. It is well suited for the production of earlies. Werbena is a low to medium height plant with semi-upright to spreading habit and is thus well suited for a cultivation under a plast/fibretex. It forms extremely strong and thick light sprout. Rather scarce inflorescences characterize this variety. Werbena exhibits a very early development after planting, rapid foliage development and early tuber initiation. It displays a high yield potential already 40 days after emergence (104 % compared to the reference variety). Werbena reaches a full physiological maturity after about 78 days after emergence. It forms rather few big sized tubers high in the ridge so the number of losses due to greening is negligible.
