WABI covers Camire’s potato research, taste tests 

WABI (Channel 5) talked with Mary Ellen Camire, professor of food science and human nutrition, about potato research and taste testing in the Pilot Plant’s Sensory Evaluation Center. “Some of the traditional varieties need more pesticides or fertilizer, or are more prone to disease, so these new varieties are more robust and they may taste better,” says Camire. “When I was an assistant professor back in the early 90s, Yukon Gold was one of our experimental varieties. Now you can find Yukon Gold everywhere.” Potato Grower shared the WABI story
