Irga is a mid-early Polish variety that has enjoyed high standing for years. This popular potato produces medium-sized, round-oval or oval-shaped tubers with a creamy-white flesh. Rather delicate, pinkish skin is one of the characteristic features of this versatile variety. Its tasty, medium firm, creamy flesh does not fall apart after cooking, but it is quite easy to mash. The variety has been assigned to the culinary type B. These potatoes can be used for almost any given purpose. From traditional boiling as a side dish to a lunch or dinner, to delicious pancakes and crispy chips (French fries). Potatoes of the Irga variety are quite resistant to viral diseases, but sensitive to late blight. Potato eelworm does not pose any particular problems for this cultivar. The unique taste and texture of Irga potato comes at the price of a low storability and being susceptible to storage diseases.

You can start growing potatoes in your home garden in the second or third decade of April. The cold-sensitive potatoes should be protected against frost with a fleece covering. Irga belongs to varieties with medium to high soil requirements. Prepare the soil in advance by deep cultivation, enriching it with compost, and thorough weeding. Grow potatoes in rows, 60-to-90-centimetres apart, in 25 to 28-centimetre spacings. Hill the rows after shoots have appeared. Taking care of your potato culture is not complicated. It is based on weeding and watering, as well as on the use of appropriate plant protection against diseases and pests.
