Variety Description

Variety used for comparison: 'Mondial'

Summary: The lightsprout of 'Panamera' is medium size whereas the lightsprout of 'Mondial' is small. The lightsprout tip of 'Panamera' has medium density of pubescence whereas the lightsprout tip of 'Mondial' has sparse pubescence. The plants of 'Panamera' are taller than the plants of 'Mondial'. The foliage structure of 'Panamera' is stem type where the foliage is open and the stems are clearly visible whereas the foliage structure for 'Mondial' is intermediate type where foliage is half open and the stems are partly visible. From the second pair of lateral leaflets, the leaflet of 'Panamera' is narrower than long whereas the leaflet of 'Mondial' the leaflet is as broad as it is long.

FLOWER BUD: medium to high extent of anthocyanin colouration
COROLLA: medium size
COROLLA (INNER SIDE): absent or very low extent of anthocyanin colouration, absent or very weak intensity of anthocyanin colouration, absent or low proportion of blue in anthocyanin colouration

TUBER: oval shape, cream to light yellow flesh
TUBER EYE: shallow, yellow at base
TUBER SKIN: yellow, develops weak to medium intensity of anthocyanin colouration in reaction to light

Origin & Breeding History: 'Panamera' originated from a cross conducted in 2000 at HZPC Holland B.V. in Metslawier, Netherlands between 'Voyager' and 'Fabula'. 'Panamera' was selected in 2001for its yield, internal and external quality, and resistance against diseases and pests.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Panamera' was conducted by Global Agri Services Inc. during the growing season of 2016 in Drummond, New Brunswick. The trial consisted of a single, 19.5 metre long row containing 65 plants spaced 0.3 metres apart for each variety. The distance between rows within the trial was 0.9 metres. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants, or 10 parts of plants, of each variety. Mean differences were significant at the 5% probability level based on a paired Student's t-test.
