Abstract

Kufri FryoM is a medium maturing, high yielding main season French fry potato variety suitable for cultivation
in North-West and Central Indian plains. It is a clonal selection from a cross between Kufri Chipsona-1 √ MP/92-35. It
has semi-compact, vigorous, medium-tall plants and produces attractive white cream, oblong tubers with shallow eyes and
white flesh. It possesses 20% tuber dry matter content and low reducing sugars (50-90 mg/100 g fresh weight) which results
into crispy French fries of very good quality in taste, texture and colour. It produces >80% process grade tuber yield and
is capable of yielding 35-40 t/ha under optimum agronomical practices. The new variety Kufri FryoM yields higher than
the existing indigenous processing varieties Kufri Frysona and Kufri Chipsona-1. It possesses field resistance to late blight
disease and resistance to potato virus Y. The variety has very good keeping quality with over 10 week dormancy period
and it can be processed even after 7-8 months of storage with CIPC application at 10-12o C temperature.
