Growing instructions (table potatoes)
Gaudi is a medium early table potato for the retail fresh markets in South Europe and South West Asia. With a bright, yellow skin and yellow flesh, the market of Gaudi will concentrate on table potatoes and pre packers. The cooking type is AB (rather firm cooking) with no discoloration after cooking. The tubers of this variety are round oval - oval and have a uniform shape and good skin finish. The dry matter content is quite low (17,8%). The dormancy period is average.
Medium early, with an early tuberisation.
A short heat treatment before planting to break the apical dominance mostly sufficient to achieve a well developed crop.
Gaudi is rather strong against scab and can be planted on most types of soil. After complete foliage development, the ground cover is sufficient and the foliage is fairly tolerant to warm weather conditions. Although the tuber resistance is quite good, normal treatments against late blight are recommended.
The advise for Gaudi is a slightly higher N fertilisation than average to obtain a sufficient foliage development. If the application of N will be split, the second application should be around the time of tuberisation. For Phosphate and Potassium the normal applications are recommended.
Gaudi has a very good skin finish and is not sensitive to internal bruising. However, caution on harvesting is always recommended because of the demands for the high quality market.
Because of the medium dormancy period, Gaudi can be used for medium long storage.
Resistance to diseases
Resistant to Potato Cyst Nematodes Ro1, 4 and to wart disease fysio 1. Medium susceptible to foliage blight (Phytophthora infestans) and fairly strong for tuber blight. Medium strong against common scab. Susceptible to PVY, however not susceptible for PVYntn symptoms in the tuber.
