Stately: A high quality home gardener’s potato for Alaskans
Stately, a new high quality potato, was selected and released to meet the standards that tourists and new settlers associate with some varieties of imported potatoes. Heretofore persons who chose to have this quality for their table had to rely on imports because no variety with the desired characteristics was available in Alaska that could be produced economically by Alaskan growers.
Stately does not yield so well as standard varieties now being produced commercially and therefore may remain a home gardener’s variety. It seems likely that restaurants and discriminating caterers as well as airline chefs would use this variety to the exclusion of imported potatoes if Stately were produced in sufficient volume to provide them with a steady supply.
