High to very high yielding variety; adapted to the muck soils of northern Ontario where it sizes early, has a minimum of hollow heart and does not bruise easily. Hollow heart and bruising are more common when grown in southern Ontario and eastern Canada (except on muck soils). Susceptible to internal heat necrosis when grown in hot soils, resistant to drought, good for the table stock market, unsuitable for processing. Stores very well. Low total glycoalkaloids and high total solids.

NOTE: selected specifically for Northern Ontario as a high yielding early sizing variety.

Resistant: PVX and PVY.
Moderately resistant: bacterial soft rot, black leg, late blight, leaf roll and rhizoctonia.
