Gardeners' opinion

Good day! For more than 10 years I have been successfully growing potatoes on the site. Rosara potatoes correspond to the description declared by the originator. The plant shows consistently good results in the Northwest region. Potatoes are not afraid of cool summers and lack of light. There are no difficulties in leaving, it is enough to adhere to standard recommendations. I begin to dig out the harvest in late or mid-August. Root crops are distinguished by their high taste. They are stored for a long time, they are well tolerated over a distance of 1000 kilometers. I did not find any minuses for myself.

Good day! The positive feedback from the neighbors opened up the Rosara potato for me. The plant is suitable for growing in central Russia. It is not afraid of most diseases and tolerates weather changes. The non-capricious variety shows a good yield when cultivated in poor soils. It begins to bloom early, you can start digging out the harvest in August. I often use root vegetables for cooking, make mashed potatoes and add them to salads. The potato has excellent taste and is suitable for an independent side dish. Not watery or too starchy. I advise!
