If you ask which vegetable is the most beloved and popular, then potatoes will rightfully take first place. A rare dish does without tasty and crumbly potatoes, so the list of varieties is impressive. Breeders are constantly creating new useful species, among which the Blue Potato should be noted.

The name is unusual, but this does not stop potato growers. They always choose varieties, the main characteristic of which is yield, and the second is unpretentiousness. How are these criteria embodied in the variety? This question will be answered by a detailed description of the Golubizna potato variety.

Description of unusual potatoes

You need to start with the fact that the blue potato variety belongs to the mid-season. After 85-100 days after planting, you can harvest. More popular with summer residents than farmers. Main settings:

  1. Bush. It is liked by gardeners for its medium height and weak spreading. In the ridges, Blueness potatoes look very neat and beautiful.
  2. Leaves. Volumetric, juicy green color, keep saturated color for a long time.
  3. Flowers.

    Unusual, bright cornflower blue, decorating the site with their flowering. Thanks to their color, the variety received an extraordinary name.
  4. Tubers. Medium size, the weight of one potato is about 150 g. The shape of the tubers makes it possible to distinguish blue potatoes from other varieties. They have a blunt tip, although the tuber itself is rounded. The peel is mesh, the flesh is white. Does not darken during processing, crumbly, with a high starch content.

The variety is loved by many summer residents precisely for these qualities. Useful characteristics include its resistance to common potato diseases:

  • cancer;
  • wet and ring rot;
  • scab;
  • rhizoctonia;
  • alternaria;
  • mosaic viruses.

Golubizna potatoes sometimes get sick with late blight, but to a lesser extent than other varieties. But its drought resistance and ability to withstand heat is very high. Therefore, these potatoes are loved by those summer residents who have difficulties with watering. Attention! Resistance to prolonged cold snap and the ability to grow with a close location of groundwater are the advantages of an unusual variety.

High yield rates especially when grown on loamy and sandy soils. From one hundred square meters, you can collect up to 1500 kg of quality tubers.

How to plant the Blue variety correctly

According to the recommendations of breeders, the variety is planted in the first ten days of May. It is necessary to control the temperature of the soil and not to rush if it is kept below 7 ° C. Tubers have good adaptive qualities, they tolerate insufficiently heated soil well. You should not be late with planting, because in this case the keeping quality of the potato will significantly decrease or it will not have time to ripen. If planting is late, the starch content will be lower, which will affect the nutritional value of the tubers.

An unusual potato variety is planted on the ridges and in the ridges. It depends on the region. If you grow it in arid climates, it is better to use ridges, in high humidity - ridges. Most often, planting is used with a distance between the rows of 70 cm, with high humidity it is increased to 90 cm.

But the depth is calculated depending on the climate, the chosen method of planting and the quality of the preparation of tubers.

With ridge planting, the tubers are buried 7-8 cm. The same parameter is maintained on loam. Sandy loam and sandy soil make it possible to plant Golubizna potatoes in even rows with a depth of 6 cm.

Important! Large tubers can be cut during planting without fear of reducing yield. This technique will not affect the important indicator.

Into the designated holes add:

  • compost or rotted manure (1 glass);
  • wood ash (0.5 cups);
  • bird droppings powder (1 tbsp. spoon).

The mixture is mixed with earth and covered with a 2 cm layer of soil on top. Then the tubers are planted upside down with sprouts and top, covered with earth and await shoots.

Competent potato care

A special feature of the Golubizna variety is the need for fertilizers and top dressing. This affects its growth, so it will be more difficult to get a large harvest without food. Fertilizer is applied for the first time when planting. This is described above. Then, during the growing season, it is fed with organic and mineral components. Among organics, Blueness potatoes prefers:

  • bird droppings;
  • mullein;
  • infusion of herbs or nettle.

Organic fertilizers are applied in the form of root dressings.

And mineral components are applied with complex fertilizers. If you are well aware of the plant's needs for mineral components, then you can use separately nitrogen, phosphate and potassium in a certain phase of potato development.

The second point of care is watering. The variety is undemanding to the regularity of watering. Its advantage lies in good development even with a moisture deficit.

In order to guarantee a good harvest, it is necessary to protect the planting of blue potatoes from diseases and pests.

For this purpose, at least three treatments are carried out from the Colorado potato beetle and late blight.

If the disease could not be avoided, urgently process the potatoes with Bordeaux liquid (1%). You can replace the composition with the drug "Hom". The last treatment should not be later than three weeks before harvest. The Golubizna variety shows good resistance to other potato diseases.

The main pests are the Colorado potato beetle, bear, wireworm. The Colorado potato beetle does not tolerate the preparations "Commander", "Dilor", "Iskra DE". Use as directed. Medvetox acts on the bear, and the wireworm is destroyed during digging together with wheatgrass (his favorite habitat).

Harvesting begins in the second half of August.

Two weeks before the appointed time, the tops are cut off. This technique allows you to increase the yield of the variety. The tubers are stored at a temperature of 2-4 ° C. They have excellent keeping quality, do not deteriorate during storage and retain their taste until the next harvest.


We hope they will help you make your choice on potatoes Blueness description of the variety, photos, reviews of summer residents.

I love the Blue Potato variety very much for its unpretentiousness and good yield. At my age, it is difficult to keep track of the condition of all plants, and this variety almost never gets sick.

Constant employment does not allow spending a lot of time in the country. Golubizna chose potatoes for their ease of watering and the possibility of saving. The variety perfectly tolerates planting with parts of tubers, which for another species immediately affects the yield.
