Cooked tubers do not crumble, if necessary they can be easily cut into slices.

Potato connoisseurs put an «average» rating on the taste of Zhukovsky early. But the taste for this variety is not the main thing, it is valued for completely different qualities:

  • shade tolerance and drought resistance;
  • good resistance to scab, cancer and potato nematode;
