A bit of history
Let's start talking about Ryabinushka potatoes not with the description of the variety, but with the history of its origin.
This is a variety of Russian breeders from the city of Vsevolzhsk. He is relatively young, “born” in 2007. Potatoes are included in the State Register of the Russian Federation.
For ten years, the Ryabinushka variety has spread to many regions of Russia. It is grown not only in the central regions, but also in Siberia, the Far East, and the Caucasus. The pink vegetable, judging by the reviews, also fell in love with the residents of the former republics of the Soviet Union: Moldovans, Belarusians, Ukrainians.
Attention! The Ryabinushka variety is an elite variety, it is not a hybrid.
Rowan potatoes have tops with erect or semi-erect stems. A medium-sized bush with wavy, dark green leaves. They are of different sizes: the lower ones are large, closer to the crown they become smaller. The flowers are violet-blue (see photo), balabolki are formed in the place of the inflorescence.

Ryabinushka potatoes are unpretentious, but it is best for planting them to choose a place where beans, peas, lupines, and grain crops were grown last year.
The planting material is stored well, so it is taken out of the storage for germination a month before planting. After a careful bulkhead, the tubers are sorted by size. It is best to use potatoes that are similar in size to a chicken egg. Before planting, you can soak in a solution of boric acid (for half an hour) or copper sulfate (for 3-5 minutes).

Storage rules for elite potatoes
After harvesting, you should think about storing it.
We leave the potatoes for 12 days for ripening and drying. After that, you need to start sorting, what for seeds, what for the needs of the farm, what for food.
Seed material is taken in the fall. After all, it still needs to be prepared for wintering. For future plantings, we select Ryabinushka potatoes by size, without damage and signs of disease. We wash it and put it in the sun for landscaping. So, the seeds are better stored.
Seed material is stored separately from food. You can use bags or boxes as in the photo. A certain temperature and humidity must be observed in the basement.
