buff skin, white flesh
The choice winter potato for northeastern growers. Released in 1932 by the USDA and Maine, it is the standard by which all storage potatoes are compared. Very well suited to a Maine growing season, spreading plants can produce some clunkers. The tubers tend towards the soil’s surface, so hill well. Resistant to mild mosaic, but not spindle tuber or leaf roll. Medium-to-large spreading plant with many large light purple flowers.
