The calrose potato: A new variety possessing resistance to late blight

  • F. Clark


Calrose is a high-yielding variety that has proved to be well adapted to environmental conditions in California. It produces an abundant set of tubers that are long, smooth, and attractive in appearance. This variety possesses sufficient resistance to late blight to protect it against mild attacks of this disease, therefore it should prove to be a useful variety in potato-producing districts where late blight occurs. It requires a relatively long period of growth, which should enable it to supplement other varieties in extending the length of the harvesting and marketing period in districts where this would be desirable.
