buff skin, white fleshThe quintessential Maine potato. Very adaptable to various soil and growing conditions, rugged, but sweet on the inside, just like a true Mainer.
Large uniform tubers store extremely well and resist late blight. Kennebecs are high yielding, resistant to dry spells and the last potato taken down by the leaf hopper.
Shows susceptibility to verticillium wilt and rhizoctonia. Get your fields on a 4–7 year rotation to avoid this variety’s tendency to scab.
Large plants have a dense canopy of white flowers. LBR
