Cygnet PB to expand US commercial trials for Kingsman potato

Launched in 2017, the Kingsman potato variety has developed quickly in popularity to become Scotland-based potato breeder Cygnet PB Ltd.’s first globally successful variety. The dual-purpose Kingsman variety (both fresh consumption and French fry production) thrives in different climates, ranging from the Arctic Circle in Europe to the southern regions of Argentina. This climate-resilient potato variety boasts a lower need for applied nitrogen and has strong heat and drought tolerance, ticking many of the sustainability boxes. Growers further benefit from its substantial marketable yield potential and absence of internal defects.

Following positive outcomes in multiple countries, Cygnet PB Ltd. decided to initiate minituber production in the United States at Sklarczyk Seed Farm in Michigan, introducing Kingsman to the US market.
