Chipping

Walter De Jong has developed several chipping potato varieties with valuable traits such as high yield, high specific gravity, and excellent fry color from cold storage. Most of these varieties are resistant to race Ro1 of the golden nematode. Another objective of the program is to incorporate resistance to common scab and potato virus Y.

Lady Liberty

Lady Liberty is a late-season chipstock producing smaller round-shaped tubers with netted skin. Excellent chip color from cold storage. Good-yielding ability. Moderate-to-good resistance to common scab. Suitable for the small-sized snack-pack market.

Waneta

Waneta is a 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).

Table Stock

Walter De Jong’s Table-Stock breeding program aims to develop smooth-skinned, round white, yellow, and red table-stock potatoes that are resistant to race Ro1 of the golden nematode, common scab, and potato virus Y.

Brodie

Brodie is a full season maturity chipstock that produces large tubers with oblong shape. Smooth white skin with white flesh. Excellent chip color from cold storage. Excellent yielding ability. Resistant to the golden nematode (Ro1 & Ro2). The resistance to both strains is what makes this variety special.
