CalWhite

Very high yielding variety with few tubers per plant. Spacing between plants should be very close to avoid oversize tubers. Performs well in hot climates; may form heat sprouts under high soil temperatures. Good resistance to growth cracks, second growth, shatter bruises, hollow heart and heat necrosis; moderately resistant to blackspot bruises; susceptible to net necrosis caused by leafroll. Good storability; short dormancy period; medium high specific gravity.

REMARK: the herbicide metribuzin should not be used with this variety as it is highly susceptible to it.

  • Utilization: excellent for baking and french frying.
  • Chief Markets: fresh market, processing of french fries.
