Abnaki are mostly grown in northeastern United States and eastern Canada.
These are waxy potatoes, good for boiling, but also can be used for baking and chipping.
Abnaki Potatoes were bred by Murphy Akeley for the United State Department of Agriculture at the Maine Agricultural Experiment Station in 1962 from a cross between varieties called USDA X1276-185 and B4116-2.
Abnaki Potatoes are named after the Abnaki Indians, who lived in the Maine area.
