- Origin & Breeding: bred by the Agriculture Canada Research Station from the cross (F61101 x F60034) in Fredericton, New Brunswick (Canada) in 1966.
- Registration in Canada: deregistered
- Maturity: very late
- Plants: very large, upright; stems not pigmented; wings not prominent; nodes not swollen.
- Leaves: grey-green, semi-open, pubescent; midribs pubescent and not pigmented; petioles glabrous and not pigmented.
Terminal leaflets: broadly ovate; tip acute; base cordate and symmetrical.
Primary leaflets: four to five pairs; short petiolule; narrowly ovate; tip acute; base cordate and symmetrical.
- Flowers: late and abundant bloom; white corolla; yellow-orange anthers; flower buds not pigmented.
- Tubers: oblong; smooth yellow skin; shallow eyes; light yellow flesh.
- Sprouts: spherical, green, no pubescence.
High yielding variety; early tuber set; extremely high resistance to late blight; susceptible to hollow heart. Good storability; very long dormancy period; medium-high specific gravity.
Remark: under eastern Canadian conditions, heavy roots and tubers often clinging to stolons make harvesting more difficult than with most cultivars.
- Utilization: good to excellent for boiling, baking, chipping and french frying.
- Chief Markets: seed export, processing.
Reaction to Diseases
Very high resistance: late blight.
Moderately resistant: PVY, leafroll, rhizoctonia.
Moderately susceptible: common scab.
Susceptible: fusarium dry rot, phoma.
