No, just people aren't familiar with that variety.

I'd stick some in and see what they do, I have no idea if that's good advice or not.

Marfona are grown commercially as specialist baking potatoes.  They tend towards being waxy rather than floury and are 2nd Earlies.  How are you planning on growing them?  They won't be happy if they get frosted so are they going in a greenhouse?
