Resistant to Colorado Potato Beetle. The NL10-SUP plants are more vigorous and more resistant to drought than those of the variety Superior. Require 30% less of the nitrogen fertilization to maximize marketable yields. Susceptible to tuber malformation when grown at high nitrogen fertility and wide in-row spacing. High yielding variety, well adapted to mechanical harvesting. Short dormancy period, stores well, washes excellently. Tubers size early and are not subject to internal defects. Medium specific gravity.
Fair to good for boiling, baking and french frying; excellent for chipping.
Early fresh market and chipping.
Early to mid-season
