Belmira Del

Belmira is a medium early ware potato with high blight resistance. We recommend Belmira to markets asking for yellow flesh, high yields and nice skin finish. The variety is suitable for conventional production as well as organic production due to the strong blight resistance.

Planting should not be done at soil temperatures below 10ºC, and the soil needs to be well prepared to give the tubers the best growing conditions.
