Shepody Potatoes have thin, smooth, white skin with some netting, and white flesh with high starch.
The plant delivers high yields in an early harvest.
They are marketed as all-purpose for direct to consumer sales, though they are seldom sold on this way, and for processing into long French Fries (aka chips in the UK.)
Shepody Potatoes were developed by Agriculture Canada at its Fredericton Research Station in New Brunswick, Canada, in 1969 from Bake King potatoes and a potato referred to as "F58050."
During development, the potato was referred to as "F69016."
