THE BEKHAZI POTATO

In 1971, Salia introduced a new variety of potatoes to the Lebanese market, Spunta. Years of trials, studies, and observations later, this variety is now a staple in the potato growing industry. With thousands of tons yearly introduced to the Lebanese market alone, and hundreds of thousands to all Arab countries, Spunta is one of the most sought varieties of potato in the region.

Also referred to as the “Bekhazi Potato” by Lebanese farmers, Spunta potato fits the Arab market needs perfectly:

Medium to Medium
Late Maturity

High Yields

Large Tubers

Good Weather
Adaptability

cooking Type

Good Dry matter
Content

While potatoes grown from true potato seeds exhibit different characteristics from the parent plant, those grown from tubers or potato seeds will be an exact clone. This guarantees that the desired quality of hybrid potatoes is obtained while cutting the planting period significantly.
