Sárpo Blight-tolerant varieties

Sárpo varieties

The Srvri Research Trust is a not-for-profit company based near Bangor in North Wales, U.K. They breed Srpo potatoes, resistant to late-blight disease. They research the late-blight pathogen, Phytophthora infestans, and how it manages to evade most methods of control.


Six of their varieties are Nationally Listed in U.K. Srpo Mira and Axona are red, maincrop potato cultivars, ideal for low-input and organic growing, having the highest natural resistance to the new strains of blight as well as high resistance to common viruses.


Other characteristics of our Srpo varieties include high yield and deep-rooting for good drought tolerance and vigorous, weed-smothering foliage. Un-refrigerated storage is possible because of long dormancy. Their hardy constitution means that they have an exceptionally light carbon footprint.
