Zohar is an early maincrop french fry variety. Tubers have weak resistance to splitting and some resistance to bruising.  Trials have found good resistance to dry rot (F. coeruleum).  Tests for resistance to potato cyst nematode demonstrated susceptibility to both Globodera rostochiensis Ro1 and Globodera pallida Pa 2/3, 1.
