Details

Constance is a yellow-skinned, pale yellow fleshed table potato, suitable for general use. With early development after planting, this is a good early maincrop variety, with oval round tubers of regular shape and shallow eyes.

It produces good-sized tubers that are resistant to secondary growth, black spot and growth cracks. This variety is well suited on most soil types. With a medium dry matter of 20.2%, it eats well and retains its colour after peeling. It has a buttery taste and smooth texture making it ideal for mashing, boiling or baking
