Vineta was bred in Germany at the end of the 20th century... Breeders have tried to develop a disease-resistant yet tasty, maintenance-free variety. This is how the Vineta variety appeared, which became a real gift for gardeners.
Before planting, it is important to select an area suitable for growing potatoes. Veneta is not a whimsical variety, but has some peculiarities when growing.
You can start planting in early spring, in late April - early May. To properly plant potatoes, you must follow the following steps:
The variety does not like waterlogging, clay soils are not the best option for growing Vineta.
Before emergence, they get rid of weeds and loosen the soil. Loosening contributes to the saturation of the root system with oxygen.
As soon as the first shoots appear, hilling is necessary... The sprouts are completely covered with earth. The hilling process is carried out 2 times. The second time, when the plant reaches a height of 15 cm.
There is no need to water the plant. If it's a dry summer, you can spill it between the rows.
Harvesting begins 70-75 days after planting, but you can try new potatoes after 45 days. When the tubers are ripe, they start harvesting. The yellowed tops indicate that it is time to harvest.
After harvesting, the tubers must be laid out in a well-ventilated room at a temperature not lower than +15 degrees. When the potatoes are dry, they are laid out in boxes, bags, nets.
Vineta is stored excellently... A regular cellar is suitable for storage, as long as it is dry and cool.
Like other varieties of potatoes, Vineta is affected by the Colorado potato beetle... Spraying the tops with Decis, Fosbecid preparations will help in the fight against the Colorado potato beetle.
Late blight disease negatively affects the harvestthat infects the tops and tubers. For prevention, use the drug Acrobat. Spray when the bush reaches a height of 15 cm.
Vineta's potatoes are unpretentious in care, early maturing, high-yielding. The pleasant yellow flesh of the potato looks beautiful and is preserved during cooking, is used for cooking French fries, as it perfectly retains its color, shape, does not crumble. The Vineta variety has rightfully earned its popularity.
I want to tell you about different varieties of potatoes. And in order not to get confused in the variety, I will present the varieties of potatoes, photos and descriptions. Varietal characteristics depend on how potatoes will be stored, yield, resistance to diseases and a certain climate. And also an important factor is the taste of potatoes, which depend on the starch content and, of course, the land and care during cultivation.

We have tried to select and describe for you the best and most popular varieties of potatoes. Leave your rating in the comments with the reasoning for your choice. Your opinion will be useful to other users.
Yes, there are a lot of them here in the article. I have just read about most of them. Of course, this is all due to the fact that in our city 1-2 varieties are constantly imported from the region, so about some specials. varieties do not need to think. Unless only from gardeners you can find something unusual, who specifically buy them and go after them. The early Riviera variety is imported as standard, these potatoes are just bulk. Yes, it does not lie for long, maximum until October, and then it begins to deteriorate. Most often it is young and I eat the first one. At my dacha, I constantly use Aurora soot, this is the best choice for planting, it is also stored for a long time. From the late one I have Zhuravinka, a very long wait for her, careful care, so that the king would not gobble up. They have not yet mentioned such a variety in the article - Gypsy, I once tried it with a friend, potatoes of medium size, oblong, tubers are red in color, yellow inside. It is also medium late, bears fruit well and is preserved. And, by the way, very tasty.
Wow, how many varieties are described here))) Potatoes are generally my favorite product and I can eat them in any cooked form. But of all the varieties that are listed in the article, I recognized only Sineglazka, Bella Rosa and Slavyanka. These are the three main varieties that I planted in my garden, or rather helped my parents the way they manage garden affairs in the village. By the way, I noticed that these varieties are very different from each other, and this is especially evident during the preparation of a potato dish. For example, blue-eyed in general, in my opinion, is not suitable for frying, it is very soft in structure and literally crumbles at the moment of frying, but very well suited for mashed potatoes or potato pancakes. But the Slav and Bella with a rose, on the contrary, are great for frying, I even made chips from them twice)))
I am a conservative at heart and rarely change my taste preferences. So it is with potatoes. About twelve years ago, my relatives started experimenting with potato varieties and I was attracted. As a result, I was very dissatisfied, as I have always been a fan of the Nevsky variety. Although this variety of potatoes was considered fodder, it gave a good harvest and was pleasant to eat in almost any form. He loved fried potatoes and cooked them almost every other day. Now I grow some kind of glass potato and I don't even know what it's called. In soup, these potatoes are not very pleasant, as well as in boiled form. Increasingly I am inclined to return to the “Nevsky” variety again. I live in a temperate climate and I think that the variety has not yet been bred better in taste and in the level of fertility in my area. At least I was completely satisfied with this variety in these parameters.
I was looking for new interesting potato varieties - I came across this selection. Helpful. Especially for those who are just starting to deal with potatoes. Alas, it is difficult for me to choose varieties of potatoes, like other root crops - the area is shaded, the soil is often wet. Therefore, for me, one of the most important qualities is resistance to rot. I found a couple of options here that I have not tried yet, let's see what happens. But it would be more convenient if, according to this indicator, varieties were also brought together in a single list, as in terms of drought resistance. And then while you study that potato encyclopedia - the planting season will end)))
Unusual varieties were also very interested. I'll have to experiment. Of course, I will not risk it right away, but I will plant two or three bushes for testing.
I live in an arid climate, so I haven't seen rich harvests for a long time. I planted two buckets of potatoes, dug three buckets of root vegetables. This is approximately what my process of growing this vegetable looked like.I tried all kinds of fertilizers, experimented with different types of irrigation, from irrigation to drip moistening of the soil, mulched the ground, pruned bushes, tried double hilling, grown on straw, changed the planting depth, but all to no avail. Once I met a school friend (lives in my city) and he boasted to me about his potato crop. I was amazed at the result. After all, we have the same soil, and the results are radically different. As a result, he admitted that he grows only Bellarose and only this variety in our region gives good yields. Naturally, I bought several buckets of planting material from him and planted everything in the spring. In the fall, I was shocked by the harvest. Almost a bucket from one bush, which is a fantastic result. The variety is simply the leader in yield. True, the planting material must be renewed otherwise the yield will fall every year.
I could not even think that there is such a variety of potato varieties. For example, we have a lot of potato varieties, but I do not know the information separately for each variety. I only know about belarose, which bears fruit very well in our country and the potatoes have excellent taste and yield a large harvest. There is also a very large number of the Slavianka variety, I will not say anything about its yield, but this is considered a fodder variety, it is very large, but it has poor taste, so it can only be fried. I want to withdraw this variety completely and plant another. But a lot depends on weather conditions and fertilizers, and here, of course, you can't guess what kind of harvest you will harvest at the end of summer. I learned from the article that potatoes need to be completely renewed every three years, unfortunately we did not know about this. Therefore, I think next year in the spring, we will definitely buy good varieties of potatoes and at the same time update, so the harvest will be much better. I like potato varieties very much. which are yellow inside, the puree turns out to be excellent. I liked the Accent variety very much, I think I'll bet on it.
I want to find a variety that looks like early maturation or red nose
