The variety is currently available in Switzerland.
Brief description of the variety and its main characteristics:
Freeka is a crossbreed between the Blue Eyes (f) and Phureja Dreams (m) breeding lines. Both parental lines belong to Varietas, a small organic breeding company in Switzerland. Blue Eyes was registered as a niche variety in Switzerland in 2016. Phureja Dreams is in registration, also as a niche variety.
Freeka is a red-skinned and yellow-fleshed potato. Sometimes it shows a light red ring. The eyes are slightly deepened at the top. Tubers are medium-sized and tend to mature rather late to late.
The variety cooks mostly firm, is slightly floury, creamy but not dry. It has the typical Solanum phureja taste. It is particularly suitable for fried grated potatoes, simply steamed potatoes or for purée.
