SAMBA is a table potato (like Decibel or Loane), created by Germicopa and registered in the official catalogue of species and varieties in 1989.
It was born in Châteauneuf-du-Faou (29) in Brittany, at the Germicopa Research Station. 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.
Samba is a semi-early potato, with yellow skin and yellow flesh, productive. It has good resistance to tuber blight and keeps very well.
In the kitchen, Samba has a good culinary quality. Its tender flesh and good shelf life make it suitable for use in soups, jacket potatoes and mash. It is delicious and especially well suited for baking potatoes.
