This is the potato we Irish gardeners have waited for since the famine, the first truly blight resistant varieties of potatoes. For over 50 years the Savari family in Hungary have been breeding blight and virus resistantvarieties of potatoes.
The newly released varieties of Sarpo Mira and Axona have unprecedented levels of blight resistance without the
necessity of chemical sprays. Sarpo is the first variety to score 9 out of 9 in commercial evaluations against blight.
The Savari trust, set up at University Farm Wales, Bangor, under
the direction of Dr David Shaw, an acknowledged world blight expert who has worked on fungal disease for over 35, years have trialed and developed these potatoes for the Irish and British growers.
