Late Blight Resistant Potato Variety "Jacqueline Lee" (experimental no. MSG274-3)

 

Description of Technology

 

The Jacqueline Lee potato variety has a bright golden skin, yellow flesh, attractive oval shape, and excellent cooking qualities that make it suitable for tablestock use.

It is a full-season variety with vine maturity similar to Snowden.
