AMANDINE is a firm-fleshed potato variety (such as Charlotte or Chérie), created by Germicopa and registered in the official catalogue of species and varieties in 1994.
It was born in Châteauneuf-du-Faou (29), in the Germicopa Research Station, at the beginning of the 1980s. It is the result of a long process of 10 years during which research, respectful of nature’s cycles, selected the best varieties according to agronomic, commercial and taste criteria.
In France, on the fresh market and in the garden, it is marketed under the brand name PRINCESSE AMANDINE®. It has become THE reference potato in this very high quality segment of the French market thanks to its exceptional qualities in taste and presentation. Light, melt-in-the-mouth and tasty are the words associated with it.
