Variety Details



Althea is a processing variety, which primarily use is for frozen French Fries. Althea is particular notable for having great frying attributes; high specific gravity, unique low sugars, good dry matter distribution and consistant good fry colour from long term storage.


Althea is medium-late maturing, with oblong-long tubers that have characteristic light russeting, meaning the tubers have tan to light brown skins with creamy white flesh. Tubers exhibit excellent fry color out of storage and therefore very suitable for processing after long term storage.
