Agronomic Features

Gatsby is an early maincrop variety producing good yields of bold white tubers ideal for the baker market. The tubers have bright skin finish and cream flesh. With a similar dry matter to Estima, Gatsby has a pleasing taste and flavour.

Gatsby with slightly lower tuber numbers bulks rapidly to

produce an early baker crop. Gatsby has scored well in

performance trials showing clear improvement over controls

in resistance to late blight, dry rot (F.sulphureum), powdery

scab and PVA. Gatsby additionally shows some resistance to

pallida Pa2/3.
