Summary

Fundy is a new variety of potato developed within the National Potato Breeding Program of Canada. It is early to mid-season in maturity, and superior to most early varieties in that the tubers are shallow-eyed and attractive in appearance. It approximates Irish Cobbler in yielding ability. When grown as a main crop in New Brunswick, it has outyielded Katahdin by a small margin. Although rating only medium in dry matter content, it has excellent cooking quality both for boiling and baking purposes. It carries the gene R1 for resistance to late blight.
