Agronomic Features

Casablanca produces a good yield of uniform tubers with

19-21% dry matter early in the season. Fry colours off field are excellent. Good quality skin finish with shallow eyes and excellent taste results with market opportunities in the loose new, pre-pack, bakers and french fry markets.

Casablanca will consistently produce high yields early in the

season. A robust first early, with good early ground cover.

Casablanca has excellent resistance to both blackleg and

common scab. Casablanca has been approved by all of the

main UK supermarkets, and is widely accepted as a french fry

processing and chip shop variety.
