  • Origin: The Satina potato was developed in Germany, highlighting the rich potato breeding tradition of the region.
  • Breeding: It was bred by Holger Laue from SAKA-RAGIS, resulting from a cross between Puntila and H99/73. This breeding process was aimed at creating a potato with both high yield and excellent culinary qualities.

To early to tell.

The potatoes came in great shape but as I just got them and I did get them into the ground in our hoophouse I won't know if they are high- yielding until later this season.
