Consumer Quality

Agronomic Features

Bambino produces high yields of small short oval tubers of medium dry matter. Good eating quality ideally suited for salad potato market. All consumer taste tests have been very positive and Bambino is now approved by all of the main UK supermarkets.

Bambino has up to 20% higher yields than Maris Peer.

It has excellent resistance to powdery and common scab and

consistently produces good skin finish. Good resistance to

gangrene, dry rot and blackleg give good storability with long

dormancy. Potential for organic salad production. Resistance

to Ro1 is unusual compared to other salad varieties.
