Atlantic

High yielding variety, attractive appearance; good tuber set and uniform tuber size and shape. Widely adapted but not recommended for dry sandy soils. Moderate fertilization, close spacing between plants and proper timing of overhead irrigation will prevent the production of oversized tubers that might have hollow heart. Low total glycoalkaloids and high total solids. Medium dormancy period.

Atlantic is the standard for potato chip quality in Canada and United States.

  • Utilization: good for boiling and baking, excellent for chipping and french frying.
