General characters

It is a medium-early variety, producing big tubers long oval to short, regular, with yellow skin and flesh. Its level of dry matter and its weak sensibility to sugar give her a very good capacity to the transformation in crisps or chips. Blondine is a rustic variety and of good preservation.
