Bintje is a middle-early ripening potato variety bred in the Netherlands by the Frisian schoolmaster K.L. de Vries in 1904 from (Munstersen x Fransen) and marketed for the first time in 1910. The potato was named after one of his former students.
Bintje plants are medium-sized and erect, with purplish stems, dark green leaves and white flowers.
Bintje produces large oval-shaped tubers with pale yellow skin and yellow flesh. It has shallow eyes. The sprouts are purplish.
Bintje is immune to Potato virus A. It has moderate resistance to Potato leafroll virus. It is susceptible to netted scab, common scab, Fusarium dry rot (Fusarium oxysporum), potato wart (Synchytrium endobioticum), Potato virus X, Potato virus Y, and late blight (Phytophthora infestans).
