Prada

Prada is a very-early, high-yielding table potato with light yellow flesh and very attractive bright yellow smooth skin.It forms 8-10 very uniform large tubers which ideally suit to fresh market and packing as well. Prada has medium dry matter content, thus inspite of early yield it suits for home frying. Prada has good drought tolerance, good resistances against potato wart disease, resistance against Ro 1 and  Ro4, PVY as well and a partial resistance against Pallida 2.
