Safiyah is a second early variety for general purpose use. Tubers have poor resistance to splitting and some resistance to bruising.  Trials have found good resistance to potato leafroll virus, blackleg and dry rot. (F. sulphureum). 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.
