Carolus is an attractive parti-coloured blight resistant variety with light yellow flesh colour. Tubers are uniformly oval in shape. Carolus has a slightly floury texture once cooked, with an excellent flavour. It is very suitable for boiling, mashing and makes superb roast potatoes. As it has a reasonably high dry matter, it is also good for home frying. Carolus can be grown on most soil types but does prefer irrigation. It is suitable for both organic and conventional production in East and North Eastern Europe, and Mediterranean countries.
