Exclusive variety VITABELLA - First Early
Another variety from our Dutch partners at Plantera.
Vitabella is a beautiful and flavourful waxy ware potato which is well suited for organic growing due to its excellent phytophthora resistance. Vitabella has oval tubers with pale yellow to yellow flesh and a yellow skin.
It is a firm cooking oval ware potato which is highly suited for organic growing,
mainly for the European market. The taste, the presentation and the storage characteristics of
Vitabella are very good. The variety is also suitable for making home French fries. The oval tubers have a good yellow to light yellow flesh color and a very nice presentation.
Vitabella can be harvested very quickly, because of its strong skin. It is best suited to light soils with a good structure and not too scab-sensitive. It is an early variety and requires a good fertilization. A splitted application of nitrogen is recommended.

"They look a bit exotic, which of course they are, but the taste is simply superb. I know they always say they are splendid when roasted but for my money they are best gently steamed till the psychological moment of perfectly cooked. Then you get the full floury tastiness of roasted chestnut and you wish you had cooked twice as many."
"Have just removed my first batch of "Gold" from my Allotment.
I planted them out the second week of March after Chitting them on the windowsill.
From 1 seed Potato, i have harvested 3lb of Gold.
Had roast Potatoes with my Dinner and a good portion of Chips at supper time.
Well worth the money, and the taste is just fantastic.
So glad i got my order in early."
