Shepody Potatoes



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.)

History Notes

During development, the potato was referred to as "F69016."

Released 1980.

Bon mots

"Wine gives a man nothing. It neither gives him knowledge nor wit; it only animates a man, and enables him to bring out what a dread of the company has repressed. This is one of the disadvantages of wine: it makes a man mistake words for thoughts."

-- Samuel Johnson (English writer. 18 September 1709 – 13 December 1784)
