Potatoes are by far the most important crop exported from the island. All export produce is grown in the southeastern coastal region known for its distinct red soil which is rich in mineral elements. The virtually frost free environment is ideal for the production of potatoes.

Due to its favourable mild climate, Cyprus grows potatoes almost all year round. There are three potato crops with the Spring one being the most important for export purposes.

The varieties grown are extremely versatile and they are used for consumption as well as for industrial purposes for the production of crisps and chips.

Main varieties:
Spunta, Marfona, Cara, Nicola, Sieglinde, Diamant, Timate, Accent, Liseta, Charlotte, Ditta, Filea, Obelix, Superstar, Burren, Slaney
Seasonal availability:
October to June
