The Silana potato is appreciated for its excellent culinary qualities, its soil rich in potassium, its irrigation with spring water and a microclimate with strong temperature variations[_0127_5_1 ] which give it unique characteristics: it is a tuber of the Solanum Tuberosum species, of the Solanaceae family, produced in the Agria (yellow paste), Desirèe (red), Ditta, Majestic, Marabel, Nicola varieties.

The cultivation of potatoes in Sila Calabrese has a long and documented history. In 1955 the "Centro Silano for Multiplication and Selection of Seed Potatoes" was born with the competition to promote the dissemination of the seed certificate. Some studies at the end of the 1980s (1988) attest that the Sila Plateau was among the major seed potato production basins, recording the largest ever average size of the establishments.
