UMaine, Maine Potato Board Launch New Potato Variety
The University of Maine has developed a new potato variety, the “Caribou Russet,” a cross between a "Silverton Russet" and "Reeves Kingpin." Licensed by the Maine Potato Board, it is described as having “high yields, mid-season maturity, and moderate resistance to common scab.” The partnership allows for the university to devote its time to the research and development of new varieties and the board to promote the variety and to maintain the quality of seed required to maintain the integrity of the variety and the market.
