Short Description

Late maturity chipstock

Abstract

Late maturity chipstock. Large tubers with attractive shape and moderately textured skin. In Cornell trials, yield has been comparable to 'Atlantic', while gravity has averaged 0.01 less than 'Atlantic'. Few pickouts, but large tubers have shown 5 to 10% hollow heart. Very good chip color from 44 degree storage. Dormancy is six weeks longer than 'Atlantic'. Less susceptible to blackspot than 'Snowden'. Moderately resistant to common scab. Resistant to the golden nematode (Ro1). Previously tested as NY138.
