Growing Produce Reports on Potato Varieties Developed by Maine Potato Board, UMaine

Growing Produce cited a Bangor Daily News article on the introduction of two new potato varieties developed by the Maine Potato Board in partnership with the University of Maine. The new varieties — the Easton and the Sebec — were developed over the past several growing seasons and are targeted for the french fry and potato chip industries, although both can be used for fresh market consumption.
