Sifra is a very productive round white potato variety. Wide adaptability enables producers in both Northern and Southern regions to record high marketable yields. Sifra has excellent culinary qualities and has a distinct creamy flavor making it an ideal multi-purpose kitchen staple!

Tubers

Medium-late maturing. Tubers are round, smooth-shaped, and uniform in size. Bright white smooth skin, good storability. Medium deep eyes and white flesh. The number of tubers per plant can be rather high.

Foliage

The plants will develop high, robust good ground covering foliage with erect, tall stems. Rather late maturing. Low Nitrogen Requirement. Heavy Nitrogen fertilization will cause excessive foliage, will lengthen the maturity of plants and makes top kill difficult. It can also influence tuber quality and skin set.

Diseases

Resistant to Golden Nematodes and immune to Wart disease. Slightly susceptible for Late Blight and common scab.
