Agronomic Features

Manhattan produces excellent high yields of short oval tubers with a cream flesh which is well suited for prepack ware/ baker

production. Tubers have very bright skin finish with shallow eyes. With higher dry matter than Estima, Manhattan has good taste and eating qualities.

Manhattan shows clear improvement over controls in resistance to dry rot (F. sulphureum), common scab, blackleg, PVA, PVLR, PCN Ro1, and internal damage.
