Tubers have weak resistance to splitting and some resistance to bruising. Trials have found strong resistance to both species of dry rot ( Fusarium coeruleum ) and ( Fusarium sulphureum ) and good resistance to potato leafroll virus. This variety has low resistance to late blight on tubers. Tests for resistance to potato cyst nematode demonstrated resistance to Globodera rostochiensis Ro1 and susceptibility to Globodera pallida Pa 2/3, 1.
