Lady Claire is a specialist crisping variety, with medium dry matters and very low, stable reducing sugars, ideally suited to long tem storage for late crisp production. It will produce moderate to high yields of round uniform tubers with low outgrades, but requires careful management to achieve its full potential. Susceptible to Blackdot, late blight on foliage and common scab. Resistance to Skin spot, potato leafroll virus and potato virus Yo. Tests for resistance to potato cyst nematode demonstrated resistance to Globodera rostochiensis Ro1 and some resistance to Globodera pallida Pa 2/3, 1.
