Variety Description

Variety used for comparison: 'Mozart'

Summary: The lightsprout of 'Sally' is ovoid in shape whereas that of 'Mozart' is spherical. The lightsprout tip of 'Sally' is small in relation to the base whereas that of 'Mozart' is medium sized in relation to the base. The leaf of 'Sally' has an intermediate openness whereas that of 'Mozart' is open. The upperside of the leaf midrib for 'Sally' has a strong intensity of anthocyanin colouration whereas that of 'Mozart' has a medium intensity of anthocyanin colouration. The leaflet of 'Sally' has an absent to weak degree of waviness of margin whereas that of 'Mozart' has a medium degree of waviness of margin.


LIGHTSPROUT: small to medium sized, ovoid, few root tips, short lateral shoots
LIGHTSPROUT BASE: medium to strong intensity of anthocyanin colouration, absent or low proportion of blue in anthocyanin colouration, medium density of pubescence
LIGHTSPROUT TIP: small in relation to base, closed habit, absent or very weak to weak intensity of anthocyanin colouration, absent or very sparse to sparse pubescence

PLANT: foliage structure is intermediate type where foliage is half open and stems are partly visible, upright to semi-upright growth habit, matures late in the season

STEM: medium to high extent of anthocyanin colouration along entire stem

LEAF: medium to large outline, intermediate openness, weak to medium presence of secondary leaflets, medium to dark green upper side, very high extent and strong intensity of anthocyanin colouration on upper side of midrib, absent or very low frequency of coalescence of terminal and lateral leaflets
SECOND PAIR OF LATERAL LEAFLETS: large, leaflet is narrower than long
LEAFLET: absent or very weak to weak degree of waviness of margin, medium depth of veins, dull to medium glossiness on upper side, pubescence present on blade at apical rosette

PEDUNCLE: medium extent of anthocyanin colouration
INFLORESCENCE: medium frequency per plant, small to medium sized
FLOWER BUD: absent or very low extent of anthocyanin colouration
COROLLA: small
COROLLA (INNER SIDE): high extent and weak intensity of anthocyanin colouration, absent or low proportion of blue in anthocyanin colouration

TUBER: short oval, medium yellow flesh
TUBER EYE: very shallow to shallow, red at base

Origin & Breeding History: 'Sally' originated from a cross between BIE 96-2793, as the female parent, and 'Mozart', as the male parent, conducted in 2006 at the HZPC Research B.V. in Metslawier, Netherlands. 'Sally' was selected from the resulting F1 in 2007, based on yield, internal and external tuber quality, and disease resistance.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Sally' was conducted by Global Agri Services Inc. during the 2019 growing season in Drummond, New Brunswick. The trial consisted of a single, 21 metre long row per variety. Each row contained 70 plants spaced 0.3 metres apart with an inter-row spacing of 0.9 metres.
