Growing instructions (table potatoes)
This variety will find its way as a potato for the fresh market in the luxury segment in Europe. The yield is rather high. The big, oval/round oval shaped tubers have a dark yellow colour. Also the colour of the flesh is dark yellow. Because the skin is mostly smooth, the Salinero is also suitable for washing and packing. The dry matter content is with 21,2% rather high. The cooking type is B with hardly any discoloration after cooking.
The number of tubers per plant of Salinero is rather good. A normal pre-sprouting is mostly sufficient to obtain a good number of stems per plant.
Because Salinero is rather strong against common scab and spraing, this variety can also be grown on lighter soils. There are no special recommendations regarding planting distance and depth. Slightly sensitive to Metribuzin treatments.
For the time being an average N- and P-fertilisation seems to be sufficient. Because of the average sensitivity to black spot, a good Potassium (K)-fertilisation is recommended. To stimulate the foliage development it is recommended to give the N-fertilisation before planting.
This variety has an average tolerance to internal bruising. It is advisable to take care at harvest and avoid to high drops.
The dormancy of Salinero is rather good and therefor this variety can be stored for a longer period.
Resistance to diseases
Salinero is resistant to Potato Cyst Nematodes Ro1-Ro4 and resistant to wart disease (race 1). Somewhat sensitive to foliage blight, but very little susceptible to tuber blight. Not sensitive to spraing. Rather high resistance to common scab and gives no YNTN tuber symptoms.
