Conchita Potatoes are oblong, with white skin and yellow flesh.
Good resistance to blight.
They are very popular in the Phillipines, where the potato was first imported during the 1960s from Mexico, becoming one-quarter of the crop in the Phillipines by the late 1970s.
Conchita Potatoes were developed by the Rockefeller Foundation in Mexico City, Mexico, in 1959 from a cross between two potatoes referred to as “USDA Acc. 25953” and “USDA Acc. 25959.”
