New Varieties

Becoming a breeder with Caithness


The success of Caithness Potatoes around the world has been hugely due to the varieties it has to offer. We believe that it is the skill and knowledge of the individual breeder rather than the quantity of crosses that ultimately leads to success.

We therefore welcome talented independent breeders to join us in creating the cultivars that will provide superior consumer and agronomic value for potato growers around the world.

We are currently trialling selected new varieties from our breeding programme in the UK with:

  • 3 Horticulture suppliers
  • 3 Official testing and industry bodies
  • 10 Packers supplying the major UK supermarkets
  • 2 Processors
  • 5 Seed & Ware Merchants

Overseas we annually trial and promote our varieties in:

Australia Iran Saudi Arabia
Canary Isles Israel South Africa
Denmark Morocco Spain
Egypt Netherlands Sweden
Germany North America Thailand
Greece Portugal  

If you are an independent breeder and interested in working with us, please either call or send an email to our Scottish office. Contact details can be found on the contact us section on this website.

Bute   Bute has been selected for its strengths in the white pre-pack market. It produces high yields of bold, uniform bright tubers.
Divaa   Divaa is a very versatile early variety giving good yields of very bright tubers with very white skin and flesh. It is bred from Innovator and is very similar in performance except for its amazing skin brightness.
