Albas Potatoes



Albas are oval, large potatoes with yellow skin and white flesh.

The plant delivers high yields in a late harvest.

They are very starchy, and so are grown commercially for processing into starch.

History Notes

Albas Potatoes were developed from a cross between Astarte pototoes and a potato referred to as "AM 71-1280."
